If you’re a parent or a teacher, you are probably very aware of the latest fad – fidget spinners.
Haven’t heard of them? Well, they are a small gadget you can spin between two fingers – then try to balance them on one finger or do other tricks. As they spin, you can hear a faint whirring noise.
They have grown in popularity at a dizzying rate, catching Delaware schools a bit flat-footed in deciding how to handle them. And complicating the issue was the claim by companies producing them that they are more than toys – that they are a therapeutic tool that can help kids with attention problems.
