2. I'm not sure what this may imply in the future?

Would some of these schools slap a "learning disability" on some of their star athletes to get them onto the field to encourage the return of the "dumb jock" or "lazy jock" who's making D's in a class?

And the reality is no one in a wheelchair is going to be allowed onto a field to play soccer or a court to play basketball without it becoming a serious hazard for all players, and unless there is a very large school with a number of kids in a wheelchair, how do u set up a special league.

In theory, this is great, and should be encouraged for healthy living, but with schools having so many budget issues, how is it going to be implemented? It costs a significant amount of money to change building codes up to specifications, with still a lot of waivers on older buildings that cannot be feasibly restructured without losing historical significance or that has been "grandfathered" in for business owners.

Love the idea, wonder how it will really work out in practicality and economically? At the end of the day, paying for the education is very difficult with so many budget cuts already affecting students having items like new books or a decent library or technology or even effective teacher/ student ratios.
