Holding kids back solely for the sake of attendance? Yes. I believe that no matter what unless you are very ill or have personal issues, you should be in that chair. It doesn't matter it you have good grades or have done all the work. Attendance is mandatory.

If you did all the things that you needed to at work, would you just not go?

Clearly your argument is invalid.

Patrick, I don't know how long it has been since you have been in college. But as a current college student attending a University let me fill you in. When you come into any class, professors TAKE ATTENDANCE! If you are gone for more than 3 classes, they drop you from the class and you receive an F. Attendance is important! Also being a past graduate from MCHS I can tell you that about 75% of that high school are not mature enough to get themselves to school. Attendance is so necessary for a high school student. I see kids everyday in college struggle with simple math, simple reading and writing skills because they were lazy in high school and most likely did not attend classes. Would you encourage your own child to stay home from school because he already has all his work done? If you would, that is just a shame. You would be the one who is taking knowledge away from your kid.

If you see such a problem with the coaching how about you step up and do it. These coaches take their personal time to spend with your kids. Those coaches are not out there for themselves, they are out there for the kids. They teach them discipline, and that sometimes you need to put in the extra effort on and off the field. Some kids do not play because they are lazy at practice, and do not work as hard as others. Being a athlete myself, I know what it is like to sit on the sidelines sometimes. Yes it does suck, but it always lit a fire under my butt to work harder. Even in middle school. I would not be where I was today if it wasn't for those coaches in middle school and high school that pushed me to where I am today. Do not automatically blame the coaches for their choices in the game, it will get you nowhere.
