High School Sports Should End

I agree with the guest for two reasons: Kids must try out for school sports and many do not make the team so our tax dollars are paying for a select few to play. In recereational sports, there are teams for players of all skill levels. Also, I prefer my tax dollars be spent on education including PE classes that promote health and well-being for all.

Sports participation in schools is an important element of the health and wellness of this nation. Mr. Stevens argument is unidimensional and one-sided. I am disappointed that you allowed him to ramble on about his extremest point of view without someone to present the other side.
