Academics vs. Sports at Keys High Schools

by Larry Murray…….

Dear Editor,

If you are interested in obtaining insight to the mindset of the typical Keys high school student, I urge you to read the “Prep Sports: Class of 2018 Senior Spotlight”.  This is a daily feature on the sports page of the Key West Citizen. The Citizen has published this feature for a number of years and I find the comments very insightful.

I urge you to pay particular attention to the responses to two questions: “Regarding the sports you play and academics, what’s more important in your life?” and “What goals do you have next year, academically and/or athletically?”. The responses to those questions are, I think, very enlightening and informative. They tell you a lot about student attitudes, what they think and believe, especially with regard to the importance or lack thereof of academics.

I will not say any more about the content of the answers, leaving it to you to be the judge.

  1. Lots of cash going through sticky hands at conch’s games. Time for some public records requests. I assure you, you won’t like what you find.
