Sports are way more important than education. The kids leave early, multiple times a week, to attend sports. Hours early off their education is lost, to play sports. These kids have athletics in the morning, some for the first 3 hours of the day. Lets do the math: 7 hours in a school day. Minus the 3 hours of sports: leaves 4 hours. If they leave 2 hours early, that leaves 2 hours in a day. They get to eat lunch (35 minutes) and have 5 minutes between each class (8 periods a day-40 minutes): That leaves 45 minutes for MATH, SCIENCE, ENGLISH, HISTORY, MUSIC, MASS COM, STUDY HALL, ETC ETC, ETC. All the important educational classes are pushed aside to make that all important baseball, or football, or soccer, or track , or whatever game. Priorities make the world a better place. SISD has Zero for these kids education.
