  Case: Their kids play sports
You are a high school teacher, and Caleb Rushmore is the star running back for the football team. He sleeps in class and is extremely focused on football, and is, in fact, counting on a football scholarship. When his parents come in to conference, their main concern is his sports participation and eligibility. How would you handle this situation?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
I would tell the parents that their student is an exceptional athlete but a sub-par student and give examples of each. The parents need to realize that when Caleb is a student-athlete, student comes first, football is just an extracurricular. If Caleb does not have what it takes to handle both football and school then he should consider postponing football until his grades and participation increase in the class.
