Sports should be kept separate not used as a tool. This should be a given right, an award for attending school and being human. Schools are telling kids right out of the gate 6th grade, that they are not good enough if they don't make passing grades. In away they feel they are being punished. Taking away the one thing that they might free themselves with or feel good being apart of a team which is positive can be destructive. These kids get put in a box and start to feel bad about themselves so they drop out and go look for a place where they fit in which ends up being with other kids that were apart of the same pattern, then they turn to drugs and/or gangs because of the rejection that should have never happend in the first place. The standard military system just doesn't work anymore and it's time to change with the times. When are midwest public schools going to see this?

It might. To some extent it depends on your other grades. Most schools have a cut off that if you are below 2.0 GPA you can't be in sports. So if your summer school class brings up your GPA to 2.0 or higher you are home free. If not, make sure your grades are better next year.
