School sports costly
With budget crunches being announced, we have to take a close look at sports in schools. Schools were established for learning and sports as an extracurricular activity. But in these hard times, we must have our schools as a place of learning and not a sports arena. Last time I looked, the USA was way down on the list of countries in terms of educating its children. This trend can be stopped. The next time you get a flyer in the mail outlining the next budget, look carefully at how much is set aside for sports. I think the number will shock and anger you.
