I'm interested in what you think of this situation. In the state of Michigan a high school student is only allowed to play high school sports until the age of 19. If the student turns 19 before the sports season starts, then that student is ineligible for the sports season. For example, a student wants to play basketball, but the student turns 19 before the season starts, thus making the the student ineligibile to play basketball and any other sport after the basketball season. There is a petition being sent around that could potentially allow a 19 year old high school junior with down syndrome to play high school sports his senior year.
What I want to know is: What is your opinion on the following article?
