Should school atheletes have to be on the honor roll to play in games?
Transcript of Should school atheletes have to be on the honor roll to play in games?
What effects would such a standard have? What would the consequences of not meeting the standard be? The consequences would be simple: If you don't maintain the average, you can't play until you get it back up. If a school doesn't follow this rule and stop a player with a bad average from playing, I believe that the school should have to forfeit their previous wins and be ineligible to participate in playoff games. By Daniel Norris Should school athletes be on the honor roll to play in games? WAZZZ UPPP? Volcanoes ARE AWESOME! What is GUCCI Why shouldn't student athletes have to be on the honor roll to participate in games? There are several reasons. First, without a good education, there are very few future oppurtunites for employment. Chances of being an athlete for a living are astronomically low. There are 7.6 million high school athletes in the United States. Under one percent of them will make a career out of playing sports. For example, out of one hundred-fifty-six thousand male high school seniors who play basketball, approximately forty four will go on to play basketball at the highest level. Therefore, the focus of students needs to be academics, not athletics. Academics are what will support the vast majority of students after their education is over. There would be many positive effects of such a rule. There will be better grades across the nation after a rule like this is implemented. Also, by having to work hard in school, students may find more interests outside of sports. Students will also become more responsible if they have to maintain an average. In Conclusion There needs to be more control on athletes who don't do well in school yet still play sports. If a rule like this is implemented, it will be for the betterment of the nation's students. http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/high-school-notes/2011/09/02/high-school-sports-participation-increases-for-22nd-straight-year
