Not sure I see a point there. People can die from heat stroke, so government officials shouldn't take steps to ensure that children don't die of dehydration during exercise periods for which the government is responsible?<quoted text>
have you ever had a heat stroke??
People die from them
All the more reason, it would seem, to ensure that the children's thirst was slaked with something that would PROVIDE those salts. I'm not sure I understand that this statement supports your opposition to the school's requirement. Or ARE you opposed to it? Children MAY need the government's representatives to tell them what to consume while they are under the GOVERNMENT'S supervision. Kids aren't omniscient, and don't necessarily act on what knowledge they DO have.Have you ever heard of water toxicity???
You can die from drinking too much water with out enough salts
If the school is teaching or even just reinforcing the lesson that dehydration should be guarded against, then I don't see the problem from here. I would think it was just a question of the school making sure that the children came out with an added and engrained awareness that will help them to thrive in your environment.
