Group Hugging Ban Captures International Attention

One Oak Park Illinois school's "hugging ban" has captured the media spotlight, for however briefly. Maybe this is a new part of Ed In '08's strategy to win more attention for education issues. And it's working. (You know they convinced Kozol to do that partial fast thing.) Or maybe it's just a slow news week and schools are easy targets. Check here to see 200-something stories published on the topic. Not known for accuracy, many of the media stories miss the fact that the hugs being banned are big group hugs not the usual greeting kind.

I understand if the hugging continues beyond like 2-3 minutes but what if the person is upset or sad or suicidal and needs a friend. There is a National Huggin Day and it is natural. Promote it. If there are intimate issues with certain students then the school needs to address these issues via counseling and curricula and address acting out issues from single parenting, abuse, etc. The school needs to address these issues. As for hugging promotie it. Here is the National Hugging website. http://www.geocities.com/hugging_whining/Hugging.html
