    DALLAS - The Dallas school system was rocked by allegations Thursday that staff members at an inner-city high school made students settle their differences by fighting bare-knuckle brawls inside a steel cage.

    Sounds like a good way to raise money for the school district. Less overpriced candy bars, more cage fights.

    No criminal charges were ever filed
    The allegations came to light during a grade-fixing investigation that eventually cost the high school its 2005 and 2006 state basketball titles. School officials were suspected of altering students' grades so that they could remain eligible to play for South Oak Cliff, a perennial basketball powerhouse in one of the poorer sections of the city.
    A staff that arranges bare-knuckle brawling fights for entertainment & fixes grades so that their players can play basketball?

    Why is this staff even still employed?

    I wouldn't mind fighting for a higher mark on some of my exams.
    They should charge admission. Make more moeny for their poor school.

    I always thought they should have Ultimate Fighting instead of wrestling in gym class...

    This. Is. Awesome. But Webby has to fight someone. Who should he take on?

    Also, need a battle of the foreigners: Me, and the other Canadians vs El and the other Europeans.
