Chalk Talk: Education, Athletics, or Both
Often in our schools athletic excellence is used as an excuse to allow students to pass classes without performing in the academic arena. In reality this is extremely harmful to the student as they are not getting the education they deserve. The Augusta School System seems to have found a balance between academic excellence and athletic excellence. Students are encouraged to perform well in both areas. You see this balance in the awards in both education and sports that this school system has received and continues to receive.
