[quote="pulsewidth modulation"]After school sports have nothing to do with education; it's time after school sports get farmed out to the private sector. Gym class is REAL physical education and it is supplied. You don't need to pay someone to teach kids how to run back and fourth while chasing a ball in order to keep them out of trouble. The YMCA does this for 1/2 the cost. Besides, this way the gym can actually be used for real physical activity rather than a strategy center.
I can't argue with that. When a school district only has so much money, it ought to be using those resources for education, what goes on in the classroom, not for sports.
