Why do we put so much time and money into sports and not into education?


It seems to me that if we want to fix the education problem in America we need to stop dumping so much money into sports. I understand that they are recreational, but all the money that schools get about 80% of the funds go into the sports program. Why? It seems that if we want to fix that problem we need to put money toward the solution not putting it into a game of catch. If we put money into education, i.e. more books, better teaching materials, and better ways to test the kids on what they know. I'm sorry, but lowering test scores and playing catch is not the answer.
