    Sports are great for a lot of kids. Besides promoting health, they can promote healthy competition, teamwork, perseverance, goal-setting, and they can promote academics too because most schools require minimum grade point averages.

    Now, if we're going to pit sports against academics, as two entities competing for limited funding, then yeah, obviously sports is a lower priority. My fantasy is that schools would be well-funded enough that this would not be an issue...
