    No, but I think if a kid is being sent to a parochial school, he should either attend the one closest to him or in his parish, or be willing to sit out a year. For example if a kid lives in Erlanger, he should be attending St. Henry, not CCH or NewCath. Same goes for the public schools in Jefferson County.

    Technically isn't St.Henry in Boone County now? I don't think any governing body should be able to tell me where to send my kid. What If I live in Edgewood and I'm a Holy Cross graduate and thats where I want my kid to go?

    Careful now. I said that last week and I was rewriting the Constitution.

    Stud - I missed the part where the KHSAA says you can't send your kid to any school you want.

    Behind? Maybe. Is it fatal to one's future high school athletic career? No.

    Bascially thats what the propositon of the 20 mile rule and the proposition making them sit out a year if they live out of district is trying to do.

    I know I wouldn't want my kid to sit out a year it would be unfair to him. So if I lived in Edgewood and even though I want to send my kid to HC, to avoid him sitting out a year I would reluctantly send him to CCH.

    Stud, if I live in Edgewood, I can send my child to any private school within 20 miles which would include not only CCH and HC but also Villa, St Henry, Newport Catholic, Bishop Brossart, Heritage Academy, or Covington Latin.

    I can't believe how much the KHSAA is limiting your options.

    Isn't what OB is saying is that proposal 1 is setting geographical boundaries for all schools including private. They are trying to make Private schools have districts and if you live outside that district your kid has to sit out a year. If read it wrong I"m sorry .

    Also what about kids who don't have a catholic school within a 20 mile radius and there parents want to send them to a private school.


    The thing that cracks me up about this whole issue. People backing these propositions can't grasp the fact that people actually rather send their child to a Catholic school rather than a Public for many more reasons there sports.

    A majority of people who attend Catholic schools are 2nd,3rd, and 4th generation students of that school, just like the rural schools across ky.

    Fact of the matter is and I know this is extreme. But if I want to drive 50 miles everday to the school of my choice the KHSAA shouldn't tell me otherwise, its my choice as a parent.

    Read the proposal. It says if a school has a defined district, you must live in that district. For private schools, the KHSAA is using a 20 mile radius thus my example above is true.

    Again, the KHSAA is NOT saying where you can send your child. Hopefully the school you choose is what's best for the child and sports only has a small part. If the school is best for your child in the long run, sitting out his/her freshman year should NOT be a deterrent.

    I'll ask again. Where does it say that you CANNOT send your child to any school you wish?

    I mis-read it. Sorry.

    But I think sports should play a role in where I send my child, I think its a major part of a young person growing. I should put them in a situation that can best help them succeed academicaly and athleticaly.

    But my first choice as a parent will be Covington Holy Cross for reasons I think are apparent. But if I lived outside the 20 mile radius I would have to rethink it because making your kid sit out a year is almost like punishment.

    What do you think the sitting out a year is trying to do?
