American Enterprise Institute Scholar Christine Hoff Sommers is out with an interesting and incredibly important article in TIME today. Sommers points out how little boys are demonized in our public school systems for simply being boys and playing in a traditional way that is crucial to development and learning. The whole thing is worth a read.
But are boys getting expelled from school because they are terribly misbehaved? Hardly. They’re being expelled thanks to a lack of common sense in our school system and ridiculous one-size fits all, no-tolerance policies. Not to mention, the political correctness run amok isn’t helping. Take for example schools that require children to play "tug of peace" instead of "tug of war," something Sommers points out in her piece.
