The price of safety in the school yard

A recent opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal caught my eye. Entitled "Why Safe Kids are Becoming Fat Kids" the author argues that in our zeal to remove all risk from the environments in which our children play, we have also taken from them valuable learning opportunities.

I wonder whether this may be true, not only in the yard during recess, but in the classroom, as well.
