10 Surprising Things Banned in Schools Today

While there are many things banned in schools worldwide that should rightly be restricted, many feel that schools are taking regulations too far these days and banning things that can help kids build relationships, have fun, learn, and understand how to function in the real world.

More than being surprising, many of these bans are downright ridiculous and draw attention away from far more pressing educational issues.
