As much as I love my boys, if my school was to have to start cutting funding, I would rather they cut funding to sports activities rather than academic ones.
Just today a school district near where I live shut down about nine different magnet programs designed to enrich the academic lives of under performing students. And yet not one single sports program was cut back.
It sure makes you wonder what is going on in the minds of these people making these decisions considering they are quite possibly directing the future of these children.
