Bow High School in Bow, New Hampshire, won't let Isabel Gottlieb graduate because she is missing a P.E. credit. It bears no significance that Gottlieb plays three varsity sports and gets more physical activity than even that pesky P.E. class provides. If it were up to them she would drop AP biology to make room for physical education.
At least someone in the education biz has their head on straight. Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, has accepted Isabel without the P.E. credit (and without the diploma) provided she gets her GED.
