I have a child that goes to this school.Who has tried out for basketball for the last three years and has been rejected every time also has played baseball. Every year the same kids get picked most are teachers kids or they are some one considered high in the community. I believe that not just my child but all these kids that always get turned down should have a chance Schools tell are kids they can do anything and then turn around and crush them. If you are always turned down people tend to give up and kids really do. All im saying is if it was your child how would you feel. I wish I could move my house to be truthful because my child dont even want to go to this school because of this very reason and im sure that what i have said will fall on def ears but i love my child and someone has to stand up for all the kids year after year that get turned down

I believe as a parent myself that you are right.If the parents don't stand up for their child then no one else will.Children get a deep sadness about them when they get turn down time after time.Sometimes it follows them thur out their life.It is sad that the school system has come to this.
