Travesty in Baltimore: Athletic Kids Permitted to Play While Below 2.0
8-10-18, Baltimore Sun -- The Baltimore school district estimated that six city high schools were at risk of losing all their fall sports teams and that an additional eight could have lost at least one fall team because student athletes were below the required 2.0 GPA. The city’s policy is also intended to prepare students for college athletics; as the NCAA requires students to earn a minimum 2.3 GPA to play Division I sports.
More than half of high school students in Baltimore are living in poverty. Many are homeless and many deal with the effects of Baltimore’s pervasive violence. Richard Jackson, athletic director at Benjamin Franklin High School said, “A student who's lost a custodial grandparent may have been an A or B student, but then the grades just plummeted. We want to make sure we’re looking at the student as more of a totality than at just that one moment. Our kids face so much adversity outside of school. I’d hate to have to throw even more adversity when they get to school.”
The district is now delaying the implementation of the 2.0 GPA rule. Students will have until after first-quarter report cards before their eligibility for sports is determined based on GPA. More here
