Will Supreme Court Decision Make Local Impact?
Wonder if this one will have any ramifications locally. The Supreme Court today ruled that high school athletic associations can make rules regarding the recruiting of athletes by their schools. In Tennessee, a school with a top athletic program had sued the state athletic association (the school is a member of the association), claiming that the restrictions were a violation of free speech. The court, however, found differently.
In a unanimous ruling, the court said that "hard-sell tactics directed at middle school students could lead to exploitation, distort competition between high school teams and foster an environment in which athletics are prized more highly than academics."
