Dodgeball Could Return To Windham, NH Schools

Back in March, the school board voted 4-1 to eliminate the game and other “target” sports from physical education classes because they promote bullying.

But that decision wasn’t too popular.

The story spread around the country.

One middle school student started a petition to bring it back.

According to the Eagle Tribune, a study committee is now recommending the school board allow the return of dodgeball-styles games to gym classes.
