Freaking ridiculous...
My ex was an elementary school teacher...every time one of her students saw her, they ran up for a hug. In NJ, I guess that would have made her a pedophile...
Honestly, I can't see why anyone would want to live in Jersey...

I dont disagree. There are appropriate physical interations and there are inappropriate physical interractions. If a boy walks up to a girl and pulls her in and grinds down on her it is an inappropriate physical interraction. I suspect this is the reason for the rule. Unfortunately lots of parents today dont instill values and teach courtesy toward others and probably wouldnt care if their kid offended another.

I went to a very strict school. Graduated in 1984 and we were not allowed to hug, kiss, hold hands, etc. It was called public display of affection.
We also could not wear shorts, shirts with advertising, have gum or candy, etc. This was a public school.

Good thing you are all for more ridiculous rules. Anyone that actually supports this BEING ON PAPER is an idiot. Just say no hugging and deal with it. We don't need more ropes ties around us.

Cannot imagine having to supervise 900 11-14 year olds. Before you jump on this guy too hard, volunteer to chaperone a middle school sock hop, one with the lights down.

It was a all male private military school! :trout: :rofl:

Who supports that?

"A ban on hugging in the school was issued by the school's principal last week via loudspeaker following what was seen as an excessive amount of hugging and physical contact by sixth and eighth graders, CBS reported."

Its a middle school rule. Not a constitutional issue...Yet...

From the article
that students were in a "no hugging school" following some "incidents of unsuitable, physical interactions."

I like to know what those were before passing judgment and its shabby reporting by not finding that out.

That's the point of the article. Its red meat headlines to the anti-regulation crowd and anti-school admin crowds...The US has become polarized on these issues to the point that they are now reporting middle school rules to incite a reaction from us. What's next? "3 year old Johnny scratched 3 year old Janie at pre school without authorities being contacted! News at 11!"

Uhhhkay..I wonder why Im engaging but.....Lets turn this around a bit...
What is wrong with making a rule that middle school kids should act professionally and learn to keep their hands/bodys away from each other like adults are required to do in a professional working atmosphere?

More of a reason for private schools.

Have any of you been to a middle or high school lately?

My wife teaches in one and these kids all want a hug then a kiss then it's making out etc.. every year one or more of her students gets knocked up. They all talk about having sex in closed off class room or stairwells like it's a sport.

I'm not saying this needs to be on paper but you've got parents that will take you to task if you stop them for the hug/kiss display. They ask where is it written that my kid can't do this or that?

Many of there parents are sit at home fat asses that won't work but look for a way of bilking the system even more.

When I was in HS back in the late 70's early 80's you gave your friends a nod in the hall as you passed by and a wink and smile to your favorite girl, you didn't have time to stop and make out.

NJ is to the point where ANYTHING that can be construed as unity or solidarity will not be tolerated. The last thing they want is for people to unite - no hugging, no free speech, nothing. Just shut up and do as your told. And if you question why teachers and police make $150,000 a year you're not a Patriot or you don't care about children.

It's a really screwed up place.
