Now this is a public school.
Schools have rules what kids can and cant do in their play time.
They have teachers monitoring them to keep the rules
and so they won't hurt themselves.
This public school threw the rulebook out and achieved remarkable changes.
There's no bullying.
Kids are happier and more attentive in classes
Less teachers are required to monitor them on their breaks
No expensive play equipment required to keep them occupied

Seems parents desire to protect their children
is actually holding their growth.
Children want to test their boundaries and experience the consequences.
Otherwise they become timid sheep that don't add as much
value to society as adults.
They become like the circus elephant.
As a youngster they are tied to a peg in the ground.
As an adult they have the same peg in the ground tethering them
yet their strength will easily pull it out of the ground.
In the name of protection, children are being held back from reaching their full potential.
