High fives "outlawed" at Connecticut schools?!

WOW! Anyone else think banning ALL forms of touching (including high fives) is taking things a bit too far?!

How is this rule going to be implemented during class changes in the hallways, gym class, and sporting events?! Will everyone be expelled for brushing up against one another?! LOL

Zero tolerance means zero common sense!

  • Yep, yet another silly rule that teaches kids all the wrong lessons, including how to NOT think, how to be a sheeple, and how to get creative when breaking rules. Yippee.

  • That's pretty stupid. I can understand wanting to cut down the horseplay for safety's sake but when I was in school, my friends and I all hugged when we saw each other, male or female. We didn't grind up against each other in the hall which is what I think these people are thinkin about when they think about kids hugging. But to ban high fives? dumb.
