Too much attention on athletics

Emphasize learning as the primary goal of schooling. Too much attention is placed on athletics. Athletes are praised and given scholarships while kids exhibiting academic excellence receive little or no recognition or monetary assistance. Very few can make it big in professional sports but most can become outstanding scholars if encouraged to do so. Lets place our efforts where we will get the most return on our investment and maybe those who don't "make the team" will find a reason to remain in a learning environment.
