"The school is actually seeing a drop in bullying, serious injuries and
vandalism, while concentration levels in class are increasing. Principal Bruce
McLachlan rid the school of playtime rules as part of a successful university
experiment."

Good to see someone is willing to question the prevailing orthodoxy.

Via fan tai, who wrote:

"There were no rules in the playground, other than don't go hurting others on
purpose.  I remember being a 7 year old and jumping across this 2-3 feet wide
drain as part of a game..."

Share and enjoy,
