Dallas, TX-- After finding that several children in each school are red and green color blind, the school board made the bold move to remove all green and red crayons in grade schools in all the districts. "Children are not able to appreciate their color blind friends at this age. At Christmas time, red and green especially are overused in preference to other crayons," stated Cathy Connally, PR agent for Dallas schools.
On special days, teachers will hand out one red crayon per child to draw the American Flag. Through middle schools and high schools, children are eased back into using red and green in art class again, but as little as possible.
