An A in Athletics...

Recently, the local Board of Education held a vote on stricter standards for high school students participating in sports. They voted no, leaving the current standards for school sports participation at 4 D minuses and 2 F's. You can read about it HERE. Notice this is the fifth time in the last 3 years this proposal has been presented and then rejected by the very board constructed for the betterment of education.

Also, the governer of Iowa is now pretty upset about the rejection of this proposal. It never bothered him before if your high school student was practically failing everything in high school but winning at state athletic competitions, until this year when he is planning to enter the presidential race.

Damn it's nice to know my hard-earned tax dollars are teaching the future leaders of the world to play basketball.
