TABC: Cancel Limit on Number of Academic Teams a Student Can be on
Currently, TABC employs a rule that a student may only participate on a maximum of two academic teams at a time. Additionally, in order to be on two teams, the student must maintain an overall grade point average of 85. We, the undersigned, request that the administration allow students to participate on as many teams as they would like. The reason for this rule is to ensure that students are not overwhelmed by the amount of work that comes along with being on an excessive number of teams. We maintain that a student should be granted the freedom to participate on as many teams as he would like, while fully aware that they are taking on the burden of extra work. The STUDENT should have the right to judge whether he is capable of handling this work. We do concede that in order to ensure that the student keeps up with schoolwork, he should be required to maintain a grade point average of 85.
