Several people have been telling my husband that we should enroll our son in high school because he’s certain to make the baseball team. This isn’t about his need for “socialization” or better academic opportunities. This is about how the only place to play high school age sports is in high school.
It’s not that he would have a chance to learn to play baseball, it’s that he is already good enough to play–the high school isn’t going to waste it’s time teaching kids a sport when they need their team to win.
And this is the only reason people can come up with for him to go to high school. So what does that mean?
