Is it fair to require students to maintain a "C" average in order to participate in school sports, clubs, and other after-school activities?

  • Why do they need good grades?

    Because if you cannot have good grades, why should they let you play? You have first priorities, and those come first. So why You be able to play if others are not? You can to have good grades, but then should you be able to play sports. What do you say?

  • It is Fair

    Playing sports and being in activities is a privilege. People need to focus on their school work first and once they are achieving that, they can move on to more fun things like sports. Also many sports players want to get a scholarship to a college for their playing, but now many colleges are looking for a well rounded athlete. They want someone who can do well in school AND on the field. It's not just about how you play anymore.

  • It is fair because

    If you do not study, you do not have the smartness to play sports. If someone needs help, you will not know how to help them. You will not about how to stay healthy when you play a sport. Maybe you will not even know about the sport and its rules! Thats why I think it's fair.

  • Yes they should

    Yes they should because the sports and after school activities can take time away from the player to study or do homework. The C average rule was supposed to make sure the student wouldn't fail when they play a sport or go to a activity. If the C average rule supports them they can achieve goals and can get a scholarship from what they achieved.

  • Yes it Should be part of schools

    Yes the C average rule should be in play for sports and after school activities because kids like activities and sports but sports and activities take time away from homework or studying. If they try to keep their grade higher than a C- and they can achieve their goals. By all their goals achieved they can reach a high g.P.A and even get a scholarship.

  • It is fair.

    Don't you think it is fair for students to be required to have a "C" average or a 2.0 GPA in order to participate in extra-curriculum activites at school? Students should always focus on their priorities in the first place, after all. Sure, there are many contras because of this policy, but the good always overlooks the bad.

    After school activities take time away from the students, causing them to not be able to use more of their time on studying and focusing on school work.
    If a student does not have the ability to maintain the certain level of knowledge in order to get high or average grades, the student should use his or her time learning and going to tutoring to advance himself or herself in their grades instead of spending their time in clubs. The ability to participate in clubs or sports or other after-school activities is somewhat of a reward, due to having good grades. The activity is done out of interest, and the granted permission to participate in these hobbies is motivation for the the student to learn a lot more. After all, it wouldn't be good if the student with a C average indulged himself into activities and didn't learn a thing.

    The main task of the school is to provide the students with knowledge.
    Many children return to their homes complaining to their parent(s) that they didn't get into some school team or club. Of course, they normally don't explain the exact reason of why they didn't get accepted. It is because they did not have a "C" average, right? Most schools that have these policies (Such as James Workman Middle School) have high standards with excelling students. But because of multiple student's bad behavior, their image is dented. For an example, if one student makes his priority the basketball practice in the school team, he will no longer pay attention to his school work and thus, failing in multiple grades. The schools image will continue to be dented until the failing students have caused the image to be destroyed. Now, this isn't fair for the hard-working students who went through all the trouble to applying to this school, is it? It would be a great disadvantage for those students.

  • It is fair.

    In some schools, you have to have at least a C average to participate in extracurricular activities. I agree vehemently with this. Fun activities are a privilege, and in order to earn fun things like sports or clubs, then you have to earn it. Good grades can be hard work, and so in return you are rewarded with extracurricular activities. Also, some might see it as a punishment that they can’t play their sport if they don’t have a passing grade. However, it is really only there to protect the student. Out in the real world, you have to work hard, and grades can help teach early on what that’s really about and how exactly to do that. Grades can also help you develop a good work ethic. For the most part, if you study, and pay attention, then your grades should be fine. If you really don’t understand the subject, then you should talk to the teacher about the concept that you don’t understand, or get a tutor or something!
    Don’t forget that the point of school is to educate you, and teach you a variety of things for the sake of their future education. You shouldn’t get through school mainly because of clubs, but should instead be a supplement to your overall experience. Anyways, if students have a commitment to their sport or club, then if they are really committed, then they should exercise that sort of commitment to their grades too! Privileges such as extracurricular activities should be worked towards, which the policy helps reinforce.

  • They do need to have a "C" average in order to play sports.

    I think you need a "C" average or more because for those people that think their cool because they play sports their not. Kids that are popular need to maintain a "C" average or more and have all their homework then the last cool thing is to play sports. And kid's should not get graded on their abilities on sports school should be based or your abilities to think.

  • That's the bottom line.

    Students should be allowed to be in activities with failing grades because It allows them to do something fun it also helps with their self esteem which will allow them to do better in school. And that's the bottom line because Stone Cold said so. Sources 1 - Vince McMahon.

  • No, students shouldn't be required to maintain a 'C' average to participate in school sports .

    Most of your best players could be failing a class, or just simply not getting it. Are you going to kick them off the team and lose? Sports teams shouldn't be about your grades. Other children grades are not your business. Students shouldn't have to have a certain grade to do sports and that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

  • They should not have to have a "c" average

    I am one of the students struggling a little in some subjects, but I am amazing at basketball and baseball(so I've been told). It helps to be smart and study and pass your classes, but if you just flat out don't understand it, then ask about it. If you still don't understand it, that's o.K. Sports is a career. If you don't pass your classes you should be in sports if you are good and enjoy it. You can still build a life off of sports.

  • No, students shouldn't be required to maintain a 'C' average to participate in sports.

    Many students simply have a difficult time in school, so punishing those particularly in sports for their bad grades is unfair and unethical. Any student may be having a hard time in a class, but only those in extra curricular activities are ridiculed. If the student is not making any attempt whatsoever to succeed in school, then yes, I do agree that that student should be restricted from sports. However, if teachers and administrators can clearly see that the student athlete is trying to get good grades, but simply have a difficult time for whatever reason (confusion, bad teaching, personal issues, etc.), then they should be allowed to participate in sports. Kicking them off the team would only worsen things for them also because schools would be taking away one of the only thing that student was successful in.

  • Why do you need a 2.0 GPA?

    Its the students choice if they decide to fail in school that shouldn't prohibit them from joining clubs or sports. Why do we need to stop them from having fun. If the student dosen't care about grades or college why should we bother them its their future not ours!! So in conclusion no its not fair to require students to maintain a "C" average in order to participate in school sports, clubs, and other after-school activities.
