from our recent comment and E-mail files and as the Hulkster used to say, “Whatch you gonna do?????”
I am the parent of an out-of-district player. We are out for the academics – her district has a horrible academics record and an even worse student conduct record.
I wanted my child to have opportunities and be challenged in a positive learning environment without fear. They just also happen to play sports. Should this kid be forced to attend a school that cannot meet the academic needs and deal with gang issues just because of the sports or should they be allowed to attend a school that meets those needs without safety concerns and play the sports?
What about the High IQ Bowl? Are those kids questioned about district? Arenâ€™t there more academic scholarships available then athletic? We cannot afford to move nor do we want to leave a home we love and have been in for 17 years, but we want what is best for our child and are doing what we have to do to ensure a positive high school experience.
Am I a bad person for giving my child an opportunity to be a better person? If so, then save me a spot in hell for doing what is needed in the best interest of my child.
Oh – I will NOT give my name, my childs name, sport or school – donâ€™t even ask!
