WINDHAM, N.H. (CBS) – Dodgeball might be returning soon to schools in Windham, New Hampshire.

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.
