Important

I'm not against sports. I just don't think they have any business being in our education system, as they are an expensive waste of time that contributes nothing of any value to the education of kids. All they do is take money and attention away from important things like art and music education, teach children that athleticism is more important than intelligence or creativity, distort the self-worth of kids by making it dependent on their skill at sports, cause people to value athletes and coaches hundreds of times more than the teachers charged with educating our children, and teach kids that they can get away with anything from cheating to rape as long as they're good enough at some pointless physical activity to be considered a "star."
