Girl suspended for gymnastics?

does this belong in an international human rights thread?

some 11 year old girl was suspended for performing gymnastics tricks at school. soemthing about a danger to herself and others … meanwhile, other students are involved in playing contact sports with the school’s full permission. … index.html

i can understand schools trying to protect themselves from lawsuits, but does their insurance really specify between the 2 activities? like to see how this stands up to an appeal.

In the US, students’ parents usually have to sign something before the school lets them do any kind of contact sport. Suspended for doing cartwheels and handstands seems a bit harsh.
