Structured Recess

Today, Boojkid attends a public elementary school. One day, he comes home upset. The administrators have decided to replace recess with a structured activity. For the next two weeks, that activity is kickball. At the end of two weeks, another activity will be chosen. There is no option for sitting out or doing something else. It is either kickball or going to the office. When (or if) you call the school, you are told that it is for the kids health and safety.

Is this right or wrong? If wrong, how do you respond?
