Educationally based school athletic programs play a valuable role in preparing young people for the world. These programs help students develop social and emotional skills including team-work, dedication, goal orientation, and resilience; just to name a few. Increasingly, however, school athletic programs are facing challenges. These challenges include poor sportsmanship, hazing, and a win-first perspective not compatible with educationally based programs. Join Bob Baldwin, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association; John Cabral, Superintendent of Schools, Taunton, MA; Glen Lungarini, Executive Director of the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference; and Karissa Niehoff, Executive Director of the National Federation of State High School Associations as they discuss the challenges facing schools and how Standards can be used to support school leaderships in developing and maintaining quality school athletic programs.
