Should flunkies be allowed to play school sports?

Our school has high scholastic standards. Most of our kids graduate to the next grade every yr. very few fail or go to summer school. Tonight my son was playing basket ball against another school whom many kids should have been sophomores. These kids were 1 1/2 ' taller w/ full facial hair. One boys parents were bragging that he failed 6th grade 3X's- so proud. In my day flunkies and stoners got pounded if they so much as set foot on our court or fields. They walked around.
Is it fair?

I hate to break it to you...but if our schools didn't allow kids with bad grades to play then we would have very little elite athletes in this country!!
Here in America we like sports better than education !!

The high school I went to required a certain GPA to participate in sports. I guess you can look at the bright side. Your kid may have lost the game, but he met a future worker at your local mcdonalds.
