Not plain, but utter stupidity.
We are considering removing competitive sports from the curriculum. We are doing this because some children who are not so good at sports may suffer cytological problems by being made feel inferior to the children who are good at sports.
Sports are indeed competition games. You will always have winners and losers. Someone who's very bad at the Cooper Test (like me) will have a joy playing other games (like i did with tabe tennis, volleyball, soccer, etc).
Second of all, sports can be played in teams. It can form discipline, team spirit and leadership.
Teaching kids not to do sports because they can feel inferior is the chicken way out. At least give them the chance to build up some stamina and a will to do their best.
I'll admit i hated most sports at school, but looking back i think it was a good experience for my self-esteem.
I don't know which political idiot came up with this idea, but he's the loser here.
In a way this is censorship. You have to teach kids about things, not propagate it into their heads, but have them at least understand things. Censorship only raises more curiousity and one-track-thinking. learn dammit!
