Silly, oh my yes this is silly. There is no mention of teaching the essentials, RRR. But then again, teachers must get the pay they deserve (by union standards) to get our children to graduate (no child left behind,((my ass)). Silly bands ROCK, just as clackers, pop rocks and mood rings did during my school times. I thought BB guns were the excuse for "You'l shoot yer eye out".

I'm shocked that these haven't been banned yet. I mean, really, if a trade goes bad and feelings get hurt, kids might learn that life isn't always fair.

These bands, while silly and (in my opinion) a big waste of time, are a way for kids to individualize themselves, and as such, it is amazing that the schools haven't tried to stamp them out.

With the schools getting more and more like "Harrison Burgeron" every day, it's just a matter of time.
