Brickbat: Crossing a Line

Some parents of
students at Wisconsin’s Marinette Middle School aren’t happy their
children were asked to take part in a group activity requiring them
to step forward in response to various questions. The school said
the exercise was meant to build better relationships and reduce
bullying. But parents say many of the questions could
be embarrassing
to students
 and provoke bullying. Among other things,
students were asked to step forward if they were nervous they
wouldn’t finish high school, have parents who live in two different
houses, have thought about hurting themselves, are adopted or would
like a hug.
