School Stickers, a provider of rewards for primary and secondary schools, surveyed 300 primary and secondary schools recently and found that approximately 200 of them engaged in the bizarre practice of rewarding all pupils on sports days (whether they won or not).
In order to ensure that nobody felt left out, and that "feelings" were not hurt.
Within the findings the survey also noted that 9% of schools wouldn't single out "winners" at all.
Through "kindness" these schools are destroying the children's chances of being able to develop into healthy, well balanced and mature adults.
