Amanda Ripley

  • Boredom is the specter that haunts children from kindergarten to graduation on every continent.

  • Sports were central to American students' lives and school cultures in a way in which they were not in most education superpowers. ... In most U.S. high schools, however, only a minority of students actually played sports. So they weren't getting the exercise, and the U.S. obesity rates reflected as much. And those valuable life lessons, the ones about leadership and persistence, could be taught through rigorous academic work, too, in ways that were more applicable to the real world. ... The lesson wasn't that sports couldn't coexist with education; it was that sports had nothing to do with education.

Amanda Ripley, U.S. journalist, writer
