Dodgeball in Canada promotes legalized bully

Since the inception of the institutions, dodgeball has been a staple sport that has shaped generations in school gyms. Some students look forward at dodgeball as the highlight of the day, whereas the other students see dodgeball as an activity that causes anxiety among the students. And now one of the education experts in Canada suggests that dodgeball is nothing but a bully that the education department in the country legalizes.

The professor of pedagogy and curriculum, Joy Butler, made a contradictory comment about the convention gym game. By the looks of it, Butler is part of the faculty members of British Columbia. She said that dodgeball involves two teams firing balls at the opposition team to eliminate the players from the game. Butler suggests that the sport is not viable to be played in the gym.

Butler has recently told the host of "The Early Edition," Stephen Quinn that most of the teachers that Butler has spoken to said that dodgeball is the most interactive way to make children get into exercise. Moreover, the teachers also told Butler that Dodgeball helps them to face difficult circumstances that await them in society.

Nevertheless, Butler had recently come forward with her arguments when she was in Vancouver at the Social Sciences and Congress of Humanities. The aftermath of the arguments was that she doesn't support the legalization of bullying. Moreover, Butler also said that dodgeball is a form of legalized bullying.

According to Butler, Dodgeball is making the students into a human target. For instance, an elementary school girl ran to the backside of the school's gym to avoid her classmate to not get hit in the process.

Butler said that the girl was getting hounded. And what real-life application comes from this type of misfortune. According to Butler, the game teaches the students to avoid their classmates instead of engaging with them. It is not necessary to victim young souls, as there are many other alternative activities that educators should opt.
