    What I don't see is WHY this has to happen. What's wrong with playing an innocent card game? How are you causing damage playign with a yo-yo? Is the school not PC enough so they must ban tag too?

    This is why I hate these PC Hippies that must make everyone's childhood so fluffy-pinky-sheltered that kids are going to keep getting wussier and wussier, and weirder and weirder. But the century has just begun. This is probably the tip of iceberg...


    FACISM.


    Or it could be that they're simply distracting from the ultimate purpose of school... LEARNING.


    Aren't most of these items used during Recess?

      No, they snuck their way into Math. That's why they got banned. And they always get stolen because kids are too dense to know not to wave their flashy new gadgets in front of everyone.

          I don't know what context you are using the word "mac" in.

                    Well, all schools that I attended banned playing cards, and in 7th grade they banned yo-yo's when there was some sort of a yo-yo craze in the late `90s, and I don't think they banned it in my school, but if you had a tamagotchi, and had it on loud mode, and it would start beeping in the middle of class, the teacher would take it away from you.

                              When you get to junior high and high school they really don't care as long as you don't stick the gum to chairs and tables.

                                  I dont know wether this has been posted on here yet or not, but schools have actually started to ban the game of TAG recently. They can take away Pogs, and Pokemon Cards.. but when they try to take away a game that probably dates back to the cavemen.. uhm.. cavechildren.. I start to get a little pissed. but then again, according to what my little brother has sayed, they can get away with brutal childhood bloodsport no matter how huffy the schoolboard hippies get.


                                  my friends little sister got in trouble a week ago for playing tag on the "equipment" (playground). when she told me that i laughed so hard, then the bridge on the playground broke cause kids were jumping on it and it was old.(it was there when i was.) when i was there i think this kid busted his head on a bar or something or broke somebodys wrist, so now they just dont wanna be sued for crap like that. When those teachers blow the whistle and its for you...YOU KNEW YO' ASS WAS DOOMED! lol!

                                    From Grades K-6 my school was superbly inconsistant with what they banned. What was banned one week would be alright in a while, only to be banned again. I think it was if it went a week without incident, they'd allow things back. Also, they didn't care what we wore, just so long as our bits and pieces were covered.

                                    Pogs were the item banned the most (also re-instated the most). Tamogachi, Nano pets and the like also suffered the same fate. Gameboys were banned at one point. Also were Game Gears thanks to me being a smartass. "Nowhere in the rules does it say I can't bring my Game Gear, just my game boy. You have no right to take it." Comics suffered a hit in this area as well.

                                    Some of the things that were permanently banned were Pixie stix after some kid snorted one in front of a teacher, saying they were drugs. Slap bracelets were never allowed; they nipped that one in the bud before it grew to be a huge fad. Sports trading cards were not permitted on school grounds, but others were. Ripped clothing was never tolerated. They didn't care when it happened either. You could skin your knee on the playground, if those pants ripped in the knee- you went home.

                                    In Grade 7 calculators were banned for a month after the teachers found out the answer to 6922251*8 spells something when turned upside down. Luckily it was the other half of the semester, and I had done my Math course.

                                    Grade 8 found the Co-Ed naked shirts banned, but not the Big Johnson ones. Also "cloths shall not contain, or hold any reference to weapons, drugs, booze, or religious slogans or slanders" (Yes, the code said cloths, booze and slanders. It was a brand new school)

                                    Grades 9-11 were alright, no weapons, drugs or alcohol. Nobody cared what you wore.
                                    Grade 12 however, they changed the dress code. We all had to write essays on why we should or shouldn't have uniforms. We didn't have to go through the uniforms, but it was no longer permissible to don see-through clothing (apparently it was frowned upon to say "Damn, there goes half my wardrobe!"- I am guilty of this. Like I said, smartass.), strapless, or spaghetti-strap shirts. No bandanas worn on clothing for "gang purposes".

                                      Bwahaha! I think my sophmore year they attempted to ban red t-shirts because some kids got into a fight and they were all wearing red t-shirts... YEAH...

                                      Props for the Game Gear though.

                                          They banned those silly virtual pets in late 1997. Never had one, never saw the point in one. Most everyone got it confiscated in September 1997 and got it back in June 1998 when they were already yesterday's fad.

                                          Yo-yos were banned in May 1998. They were very popular in our school.

                                          The phrase "I'll kill you" was banned for a short time in April and May 1999. At least three kids got suspended for three days for this. Funny they didn't punish the teacher who said it to me and my friend (he used to also call my friend "shorty" to her face all the time)...

                                          The marching band banned spaghetti straps in August 2004. The band also took a trip to Florida in March 2005. However, one of my friends made headlines when she went to the administration, complained, and got it overturned! She only wore spaghetti straps to Florida--no other type of top. The director was ticked.

                                          Rate My Teachers (the website) was banned not because of the students but because of the teachers! They used to go on and fight with each other about who had the higher rating! Plus the superintendent got like a 1.0 on there. I was the moderator for the school during my senior year.
