Description

The KHOU 11 News I-Team discovered serious flaws in Texas's counting of concussions in high school sports. Not only were only about one-in-five schools required to file weekly injury reports, even then those reports only covered one sport. Further investigation revealed many of the schools that were required to report injuries had not. Just as surprising, even the state's governing body for high school sports was unable to definitely say which schools were supposed to be reporting concussions under its own rules.
