I have no problems with the idea of cancelling sports programs...due to cost.
But for PC reasons “the “moral” and “ethical” thing to do in light of recent studies on the sport’s impact on overall health and well-being”? Give me a break.
How about we move all team sports out of the school systems ?
Parents can form little league programs for their chidren.
Let those parents ‘pay to play’ instead of the taxpayers.
Costs? It is the bureaucrats that are costing schools money not the kids nor the sports programs. There is a lot to be gained from kids playing sports as well as other extra curricular activities.
And another thing, as far as costs go- Parents fund the bulk of school sports programs. My son is a student athlete, he plays baseball. I PAY for this uniform and his yearly player fee of $500.00. We also fund raise year round to pay for busing and umpires. BTW, the $500.00 I pay is cheap compared to some other schools in my area where the player fee is upwards of $1,000.00 per season.
