BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Dodgeball is a game everyone played at one point or another in gym class and Louisiana education officials have decided to keep it on the books.

The Board of Elementary and Secondary Education this week ultimately voted against a ban on dodgeball and other target sports.

One BESE member said a ban was an attempt to be sensitive about bullying, but people against the ban said kids enjoy dodgeball and a ban went too far.
