  • LIFE AFTER FOOTBALL?: A Texas school district has decided to sacrifice sports to preserve their schools.

Would an Arkansas school district eliminate all athletics to preserve the school district? A small Texas district, amazingly enough, has made that call. And residents seem supportive.

What about religion in school? I suspect the reaction in Arkansas would be similar to what a Rhode Island high school girl has experienced (link corrected) for going to court to challenge a prayer posted on the wall in her high school.
