California parents angry about school hands-on-knees policy

Posted: Updated:
SACRAMENTO, CA (CBS46/CNN) -

Some parents in California are fighting an elementary school policy that makes their children freeze at the end of recess and assume what parents call a victimizing position.

The 'freeze position' has already been discontinued at one school in the Folsom Cordova District.

Parents said they are now fighting for what's right for their kids.

"My daughter is bent over and assumed this position. She could be like that for 10 minutes, until you get kids to bend over and freeze," said one parent during an interview with KXTV.

School officials,  said it's supposed to calm kids down, make the walk back to class more orderly and prevent injuries.
