Man on the Edge – Playing It Unsafe

This video is no longer available.

Things just ain’t what they used to be in school!  There are brand new rules for what kids can eat, wear, even how they play!  So what are all these rules doing to today’s youth?  

Some school rules are genuinely about safety, and we need to keep our kids safe.  The world, as we’ve seen too many times in the past few years, can be a nasty place.

But other rules, not so much.  You heard about it on the News @ 10: Richmond Senior High School is suffering from a serious lack of pep.  An alum recorded the lackluster pep rally at their recent homecoming.  Students say the school got wind of a prank, and threatened to punish kids who got out of hand.  Ra, ra, ra.

And a New York school district recently banned balls from recess.  Soccer balls, basketballs, and even baseballs are off limits.  Kids are also banned from doing cartwheels or playing tag!

Our own skater boy and Man on the Edge, Robert Wilder, used to hang ten at school.  But if kids can’t even play with balls these days, there’s no way they’d let Robert ride the wood.  

So what did you do when you were in school that kids these days could never get away with?
