Rainbow Loom Ban

Rainbow Loom Bracelets Banned From 2 NY Schools

Two New York City schools have banned the popular Rainbow Loom bracelets, saying the woven rubber band bracelets were distracting to “addicted” students, and they were getting in the way of learning, Huffington Post reports. A Manhattan school is confiscating bracelets found on its campus and returning them to parents. Eve Litwick, prinicipal of Park Slope 107 in Brooklyn, who also had to implement a ban, says the decision is warranted because students were weaving when teachers had their backs turned, and kids without looms were being teased. However, some parents say the ban is silly. For more on why they think making bracelets is educational, read the whole story on the Huffington Post
