A local school here has been making the news lately because of a new policy which benched all athletes which had a D or lower in ANY core subject, regardless of their overall GPA. Because of this new rule all but 18 players of the foot ball team were benched.
Tonight, they had a school board meeting and a large number of parents present were pushing to have the rule changed. That in conjunction with the loss of a board member got the rule changed, so as long as they carry a 2.0 GPA or better they are able to play...
My DH thinks they shouldn't have changed the rule, he said if the kids want to play they should work just as hard to keep their grades up. I said everyone has a trouble subject and has trouble from time to time, it's their overall GPA which should matter...
What's your take?
