Crazy-Proofing High School Sports examines the often troubling high school sports phenomenon in two parts. Part one focuses on the problems facing educators, students, and parents as they struggle to make high school sports worthwhile. Few if any strategies for improvement in education are effective without first knowing what the real reasons are for failure. Part two offers solutions for "crazy-proofing" high school sports. Schools have everything needed to accomplish great feats via high school sports participation, and now is the time for our educators to be the experts in their field. Written in a language educators can understand, and with stories everyone associated with high school sports will recognize, Crazy-Proofing High School Sports offers real solutions to the real problems hurting high school student athletes.
Dr. John E. Tufte is a professor of education at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota. Dr. Tufte taught and coached at the high school level, worked as a secondary administrator, and now presents to teachers, administrators, and parents about issues facing schools today.

Editorial Reviews

"John Tufte has us laughing with him and at ourselves while at the same time rethinking what we are doing, and why we are doing it, within our schools... His message is clear: It is time to start acting like educational experts! Indeed."
