BALTIMORE - A school district in New Hampshire has voted to remove dodgeball and other “human target” activities from their physical education classes, reports the Eagle Tribune .
The paper said that the board voted on the issue after a middle school parent said their child was bullied while playing dodgeball. A committee was then formed to study student “human target” games—games like prison ball, slaughter, and bombardment.
The committee of teachers looked at national sport and physical education standards, and decided that they were concerned with human target games.
But the decision wasn’t based solely on the violence involved in the games. The group wanted activities that kept students more involved and physically active.
