Star Basketball Player

Did anyone else notice that Poplar Bluff School Board President Matt Riffle expressed concern at the last school board meeting that "star basketball players" would not be able to play if they were caught with drugs under a proposed policy change. This quote was taken from the Daily American Republic for Friday May 20th. At least now we know what Mr. Riffle's priority is for the school system. For SHAME!!!

I cannot believe Riffle said that. If that is the only thing he was worried about then he should resign. We need to get some people that are interested in the students instead of only thinking of the athletes.

Don't act surprised! Everyone knows about our star players but no one gives a crap about our academic achievers.
In a time of short budgets it is time to defund sports except in pe and get back to teaching kids how to compete in the world....

He actually said that baseball players who violated the drug policy at the beginning of the school year would not be able to play ball in the spring. I don't think he was expressing concern but was just making a statement.

The truth is PB schools exists only for athletics. the board and administration care only about sports. To these people the classroom and any other activity that is offered, is a waste of time and money. Try talking to a board member and see how long it takes them to start talking about sports. You can't change the system in PB, just accept the fact that sports is the only priority that the district has. If you are concerned about your childs education for the future other options exist.
