Stop All High School Sports Except At Lake Wobegon High

A North Carolina state lawmaker has proposed a law that would end all sports at schools wherein the entire student body doesn't score above the 50th percentile in testing. Your friend sucks at school? You don't play.

This is a stupid idea. Watch the video here.

Interesting outside-of-the-box thinking. I'm imagining some poorly performing students studying like mad to avoid getting beaten up by the football team.

...Or imagine the football team actually studying for classes rather than disrupting them.
