The wussification of America has once again reared its ugly head. Students at North Hill Elementary in Rochester Hills, Michigan were sent home with a flyer informing parents that all students are “winners,” and, therefore, the “competitive ‘urge to win’ will be kept to a minimum” at the school’s annual field day event.

In part, the flyer reads:
The purpose of the day is for our school to get together for an enjoyable two hours of activities and provide an opportunity for students, teachers and parents to interact cooperatively. Since we believe that all of our children are winners, the need for athletic ability and the competitive “urge to win” will be kept to a minimum. The real reward will be the enjoyment and good feelings of participation.
According to ProgressivesToday.com, several parents have expressed their disgust with the sentiments expressed by school. TheBlaze reached out to North Hill Elementary for comment but has yet to hear back.
“That is exactly the attitude that has made General Motors, also in Michigan, what it is today,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It’s not about winning. We don’t need to be number one. It’s about working together.”
