  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!)
As a high school teacher and coach (and former college athlete), I would have the athletic director and football coach at the meeting, as well. I would explain to the parents the rules of eligibility in both high school and college, and stress the fact that college coaches want a STUDENT-athlete. The better the student's academic standing, the better chance they have at an athletic scholarship. Also, speak with the football coach- seek out consequences for the student if behavior does not change.
