One district I worked in decided we need more activities for the students (2A district in a town of 50), so they started after school clubs. Things like motorcycle club, horse riding, archery, and rifle club. Yes, a rifle club. Bring your own gun to school one day a week to shoot out back of the school. This was in 1995.
We have a pretty active group at our school. It has provided a place for some of those kids that don't really fit anywhere else and kept them out of trouble.
We also have a BBQ team. Same story. Some of those kids were perpetual troublemakers until they had a place to belong. Several of those that would have never even considered anything past high school have gone on to go to culinary school based upon scholarships they won participating.
So you think that everyone is going to abandon civilization, and live in the back woods in order to use an activity that 99.999999999999999% of people that engage in said activity will not continue to employ beyond HS...and at best use as a leisure activity?
