Public schools need to cut sports if they can't pay for it.
Education comes first, then sports.
I would love to agree with you, but sports is just about the only area in public education that we're allowed to challenge anyone any longer. Entitlement and catering to the least common denominator have run rampant elsewhere in public education. It takes a mighty strong kid to get through 13 years of this with any ambition intact. So, yeah, go ahead and throw out sports, too. It doesn't belong.
It doesn't belong because you have to deal with adversity in sports. You have to deal with losing. You have to deal with working your tail off to keep someone else from taking your place. You have to work toward building something called team and sharing together in hard work. The places where these things exist in public education any longer are increasingly rare.
