Athletes need education
Did I read a recent news report correctly? Did a Chicopee School Committee member really state that it is ok for a student to attend one of our high schools just to play sports? Not to earn a diploma?
Perhaps I did since that member apparently isn't alone when the School Committee allows a student-athlete to pass just four of seven classes to participate an average of just 57 percent and those four classes could earn Ds but passing, just four of seven is under the average to earn even a D in a class.
Shame on the School Committee members who do not feel student-athletes should have to pass all their classes.
