Banning soccer balls at recess: Too far? - The Globe and Mail

In one school in the United Kingdom, the soccer ball has lost its recess privileges.

Due to a number of accidents last year, a junior school in Gloucester has banned leather “footballs” from the playground. Sponge or soft balls will take their place, according to the BBC.
Freerange Kids advocate Lenore Skenazy nominated the news as “outrage of the week” on her blog.

“Sort of like childhood itself: That time of daring and doing gradually being replaced with a squishy-safe facsimile of adventure,” she writes.
