No Balls Allowed
Students at Earl Beatty Public School, in Canada, are being told to leave their soccer balls — and other hard balls — at home.
The principal banned the balls this week after a parent recently suffered a concussion from being hit in the head with a soccer ball.
The principal, Alicia Fernandez, said, "Kids were coming in complaining of injury, or being scared."
Students can bring sponge or other soft balls to play with, but soccer balls, footballs, baseballs and even tennis balls are not allowed for safety reasons.
Some parents say the ban is unfair to children who like to play outside.
One dad said he felt bad for the woman who was hurt, but he doesn't feel the whole school should be penalized for one incident.
Now the school seems to be split on the ball ban.
What do you think?
Has the principal gone too far banning hard balls?
Are the use of these balls really dangerous and the school is safer without them?
