Texas Ed: Comments on Education from Texas

January 29, 2007

No pass, no play, sorta

Filed under: standards, University Interscholastic League — texased @ 9:28 pm

Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Texas/Southwest:

In the past 12 years, some districts have created no-pass, no-play exemptions for classes ranging from calculus to cooking and auto repair. Others allow no exemptions.”

I don’t think we ever would have envisioned (competing) schools being allowed to exempt different classes,” said former state Rep. Paul Sadler, who chaired the House education committee when the no-pass, no-play law was altered in 1995.

“It creates an uneven playing field,” he said.

First enacted in 1984, the no-pass, no-play law banned students who failed a course from practicing or playing in extracurricular activities for six weeks.

The perfect solution for allowing non-public school students to play on public school teams–just exempt all homeschool and non-public school classes!
Or better yet, get athletics out of the school.



  1. No pass no play applies to non-athletics as well, so a kid who might not be good at English or Biology will be kept from competing in the National Robotics championship as well. The result of this is that brilliant mathamaticians will not be as well prepared for later engineering challanges as those from other parts of the country.

  2. I think that what you said was actually very reasonable.
    However, think about this, suppose you composed a catchier
    title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added a post title to possibly grab folk’s attention?
    I mean No pass, no play, sorta | Texas Ed: Comments on Education from Texas is
    kinda vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article titles to grab people interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

  7. The greatest issues I’ve with abx cure with strep are: 1. Docs typically give without having culturing two. Abx are held hostage by docs wanting to make a buck. My relatives does not have insurance, so when we’ve sore throats with low to no grade fever, we just
    have to hold out it out. I won’t be able to afford $120 per family member for being tested. There should be OTC tests and afterwards, meds could be released. I can’t
    tell you how quite a few situations we’ve been inside of a doc office for approximately 10 min check after which you can left which has a $300 bill for three men and women. It truly is outrageous.

  13. Wszystek ludzie, których poznałeś – dokładnie wszyscy – nie pojawili się tu przypadkowo.
    Przyszli, by Cię czegoś nauczyć. Z receptury wybieramy sobie ludzi, których mamy
    spotkać przed narodzinami.
    Niemniej jednak dzisiaj zagłębie się w niejaki, specyficzny rodzaj poznania,
    mianowicie: Bliskości Inkarnacyjnej.
    Podejrzewam, że każdy ma w otoczeniu osobę, jaką znaliśmy w
    poprzednich wcieleniach… Na sposób to odczuć?

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  31. First of all I would like to say awesome blog!

    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your
    head prior to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!

    my son repeat those words at times when I forget to keep from saying them.

    I believe it’s okay to pick up a child that small and hold
    them close enough to your face that they can see whether you flossed your teeth, but shaking them is never okay, not even in
    a movie.
