STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Schools are finding more ways to protect your kids. Some limit sodas kids may buy. Other schools say dodge ball is too dangerous. Now the Discovery Canyon Campus School in Colorado Springs is banning tag. Officials say the game can lead to harassment. The assistant principal says students can still run around, they just can't chase anybody. With that danger eliminated, kids have nothing to worry about expect drugs, guns, and growing up.

It's MORNING EDITION.
