  1. A criticism:

    I see a great deal of news about the high school sports teams, yet absolutely nothing about their academic achievements. Aren’t there any?

    It’s harder to get a dramatic picture of the ‘winning answer on the algebra test’, but which is really more important in life? The ability to put a ball through a ring or critical thinking skills?

    Which is more deserving of fame and/or fortune?

  2. Those journalists who exalt sports and neglect academics will have little choice but to learn to live with the world they had a hand in creating.

  3. I understand your concern Jon but this is unfair to the athletes and Doug. It’s not his job to share the academic achievements of high school athletes when he’s covering sports. When I go to this page I am looking for the number of times the ball went through the hoop, not GPAs.
