    A sad group on Board of Control to not back its member schools.

    I did think it was interesting to show how split the state really is. 9-7 on the BOC. One vote from being evenly split on the issue. I have been wrong twice now. I did not think Prop 20 would pass and thought that the BOC would not recommend it by a wider vote.

    I believe it was Jesse James in another thread that mentioned that privates may not be realizing how much of an issue this is in throughout the state and how supportive of splitting the postseason rural counties are. I believe the vote showed that this is not an issue that is just coming from 1 or 2 areas but statewide has support.

    Most of whom playing on an unlevel playing field.

    It won't be level even if you kick out the privates

    Go ask Jeffersonville HS in Indiana how Louisville privates recruit their 7th and 8th graders. I know this for a fact.

    Publics recruit too. Don't lump all the R word with the privates.

    I know I'm surprised... that it was even close. The full board won't be such a nail bitter.

    It's a shame that the BOC didn't follow the will of the member schools. But when did they EVER get one right.

    Board of Controls and public/private

    I am hearing that the Board of Controls voted down the proposal 9 to 7. Anyone else have anything like this?

    BOC

    This amendment to the constitution was voted down today by the KHSAA board of control 9 - 8 with one vote being absent. But it still must go to State Board of Education to be voted on and they could go with delegate vote and overrule board of control, the governor and legislature will also have a say in the outcome.
