Why are we not putting all of our efforts into discovering our universe and our place in it?
We don't make it our priority. We keep ourselves busy with daily things that are not even necessary, such as watching TV, spending time on Internet or going out with friends. There must be a definite purpose to challenge our minds to see why it is important to discover self being. Really, why do we have to think into ourselves and look for answers for questions we don't understand. If we cut off from a normal daily life and everything that fills it, we will have a chance to think about it.

What does it mean to be globally aware and why is it important?
I have to agree with Ryan Holly. Not sure what the point of mentioning Barbarian cultures is, but what I gather from this thread is that being globally aware is getting to know different cultures. You do not have to accept them or be a part of those cultures, but have an idea that there are other ways of living and the more you expose yourself to different cultures, the more globally aware you are.

How can sports help improve education in high school?
At this point, NHS is working on some project to find out why our students are failing. Later on, we will take further actions. We do have a tutoring system for those in need, but the problem is that those who fail their classes usually are the ones who do not care about school. And this is where we have to demonstrate the importance of learning. Students to students. We will deal with the whole school, not just athletes. By this point I've gathered enough information on this conversation on TED and met different opinions about this matter. Thank you very much for your input! :)

I don't have to talk to them to know why they fail their classes. They just don't really care about education. They do not think globally. They know that education will help them in future, but they do not know how nor why? Why is it important to do your homework on a daily basis or why should they participate in class discussions... Also, thank you for your kind words. I do appreciate them!

How can sports help improve education in high school?
You have nothing to apologize for, I appreciate your interaction. Although my school's demographics are diverse, more than 50% of the student body comes from Spanish-speaking areas. We have a lot of Mexicans. Mexicans are amazing soccer players! Even though not everyone makes it to the team, most of them still play soccer in parks and in other leagues outside of the school. My point is that the majority of students love soccer and other sports. As a president of NHS I get information about academics of our students in percents. And as a soccer player myself, I know that my teammates have difficulties with their classes. They pass them only because they have to maintain a certain GPA to be in the team. What about other students who do not have such motivation to learn? All I'm trying to do is to find a way to make those students study and since they love sports, I thought there is a way to implement athletics into academics. Somehow.

My school isn't unusual, but is behind in academic sphere than other schools in the district. I am not sure why there is a big amount of students failing their classes. Perhaps there is not enough value to education in the minds of our students. I wish to help only my own school. And as stated in my question explanation, my school IS good at sports. I thought sports might increase students' academic performance, but so far I haven't come up with a decent project related to sports and academics.

"Does your school base eligibility for sports on passing all classes?" Yes, it does. Athletes must maintain a Grade Point Average of at least 2.0. These are all valuable comments and inputs. I appreciate them all. Thank you very much. I guess the best way to help out our school through sports is to force all athletes to get help from tutoring systems that our clubs, like National Honor Society, provide throughout the year.
