Best Answer

Sports are games primarily played by children although adults play them for money as well. Sports are not required in schools but physical education class or Gym class is a required class, which in reality is really just kids playing sports and not learning. The fact that the media portrays sports as being so important plants the idea for schools to spend millions of dollars on football fields and gyms instead of normal education. American society sees this as alright although many overseas European cultures don't have required sports and focus more on education. In part explaining why education in the United States has fallen behind other countries.
