Parents (and their lawyers) are killing the high school athletic honor code
Forbes
From April 24: If you've ever played school sports, or if your child does so now, you were informed at some point that it was a privilege to be an athlete, and as such you (or your child) could get suspended or tossed off the team for stuff that didn't have anything to do with grades or on-field conduct — conduct such as drinking or using drugs, or merely being present where alcohol or drugs were being consumed. The assumption behind these rules is that your parents — or you as a parent — would be OK with this punishment. That assumption, certainly these days, is highly incorrect.

Family dinners and vacations are obsolete because of year-round sports. Kids feel the stress at a young age to earn a sports scholarship to help pay for college. So it's understandable when student athletes don't act their best, Spencer said.
