About the Book

The Death of Dodge Ball is an in-depth look at how my generation of parents have forced their views on our public education system. These extreme views are single-handedly destroying the most popular game ever created: dodgeball. Over the past thirty years of being a gym teacher in New York state, I have watched and fought against this assault on our children’s journey through their wonder years. Come take a look at our current education system as well as a good look back at your childhood. You may be surprised at what you find. I wrote this book over ten years ago. With the thought that if I keep fighting, I might create a teaching environment that parents and administrators would come to see as essential for our kids. But as my thirty-year teaching and coaching career comes to an end, I realize that I need help from my fellow Americans. Here is my story.
