    to find the area of a circle you find the radius and square it then multiply it by pi (3.14)

    The proposal asks for a 20 mile radius.

    When I do this I get a 1256 square miles.

    The largest county in Ky is Cristian Co. which is 721 square miles. I don't know if there are any schools that combine counties, but this may be the largest county/public school in area.

    So there is no need for the 20 mile radius in public schools.

    (I looked all this up, even the radius formula)

    Way too much thought.

    Pinpoint the school on a map. Draw a line 20 miles long and point it in all directions. That's your district.

    Absolutely not!!! This rule just doesnt sit to well with me, if my child attends a certain school for many years he/she should not have to sit out a year. This rule is absurd under some circumstances.

    Would the absurdity of it be enough to make you take your child out of that school? Why or why not?

    That is a hard question for me to answer because of my loyalties to the Briar Jumpers, I wish greatly for my boy to wear the Purple and Gold. So to be honest I dont know what I would do, I guess leave it up the Freshman player to decide. But is that fair to make your child decide something like that? I dont know!

    In this case they are treating some members of the group differently from other members of the group. And I'm not sure how voluntary membership is since they passed the rule that says member schools can not play non member schools.

    I am against prop 20 also.
    Since the boundaries are set differently for one group (private schools) than they are for another (public schools) and the differences act to the extreme detriment of one group (privates), it is discrimination. Prop 1 would establish different methods for establishing attendance zones for public and private.

    They're already different...

    If this kind of challenege were possible, don't you think private schools in states with seperate playoffs would have seized upon it by now?

    If the 20 mile limit were to go into effect, Trinity would STILL have a larger area to draw upon than JCPS schools... or X, for that matter, since it doesn't extend into Indiana.

    No, every private school and every public district sets its own attendance zone policies. I've said before that I don't think that the 20 mile limit will have a profound effect, but if it affects even one student, that is too much.

    One difference in Kentucky as opposed to some others (Tenn I think) is that the KHSAA is under the state Dept of Education. That makes any action of the KHSAA a state action.

    It is still a voluntary organization.

    See the Boy Scouts on the issue of homosexuality.

    There is no guarantee it will be 20 miles. It could end up being much less.

    Anything less than 20 miles can't be called a compromise with a straight face.

    Exactly what is Male and Manual giving up in this compromise?

    Personally I don't know how much of a compromise it is for anyone.

    The compromise is that the 20 mile rule would be the accepted proposal instead of the split and other more drastic proposals.

    How many kids do Male and Manual pull from outside of Jefferson County?
