A New Jersy School Bans Its Students From Hugging In Class

A New Jersey middle school has banned its students from hugging in class. Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School’s principal Tyler Blackmore has branded the school as a “no-hugging” zone. District officials had determined that the school’s 900-plus students were engaging in “unsuitable, physical interactions”. Superintendent David M Healy said that specific incidents had violated school policies, leading to the ban. “We have a responsibility to teach children about appropriate interactions and about having a structured, academically focused environment,” he said. “I have confidence in Mr Blackmore and his administrative team and believe that he acted in a responsible manner.”
