The original purpose for No Pass No Play was for kids who had failing grades in school not to be able to participate in school activities including band and athletics. However, the original idea created by Ross Perot has been morphed to fit the school’s own requirements. One perspective that has people worried is the fact that a student cannot participate in his or her activity if the student underperforms in the classroom. The other perspective is that it is the right thing to do because the child has to understand that school comes first, and he or she will succeed more with his/her brain rather than his/her athletic ability. The requirement of No Pass No Play is that a student must maintain average grade of 70% or above in every class or that student cannot participate in any school related activity; in multiple cases this law has given students that extra “push to succeed in their classes.”
