In this state? Not likely. Under an old principal we had coaches bragging that they kept starters on the Football team elligible by putting them in all Advanced Placement classes. The reason for this being the LOWEST grade you can give an AP student is a 70. Put all of your athletes in AP even if they don't belong there and they remain elligible.
The only people hurt are students who would have otherwise taken up those Advanced Placement slots and the teachers who have to contend with athletes who never show up, disrupt classes or simply don't do anything in class. It's a "victimless" crime unless you consider educators, kids who deserve to be in advanced placement classes and taxpayers to be "victims" in this scenario.
