Stop The Movement Of Top Athletes - Don't Ban Private SchoolsI have a problem with the Guru's idea of an open enrollment and no boundaries for public schools. Other's do as well. My issue is where the money would go and I would be afraid that rural areas will suffer.
For the record - I hate the proposal to split public/private schools. Just thinking all day about this and all it's going to do is water down athletics in this state and nobody wants that.
What we should want is an even playing field. As Mark Story wrote for the Hearld-Leader today, "Forcing the private schools out of mainstream state championship contention is not going to stop the movement of top athletes to successful sports programs"
It's just going to give power to select public schools and their establishments.
That should be the issue. And he gave excellent examples of great athletes who "switched" public schools or feeder systems to "win."
Any takers on how to stop this? Does anyone think that this is "the issue"? Or did I just write this thread in vain?Advertisement

So we ban all transfers? What if a student's family moves across town and the other school is much closer to their new home, should they have to suffer because their parents have gotten new jobs?

And whether it's private or public schools, if they are going to be a part of the KHSAA they should adhere by one set of rules - whether they have or don't have boundaries.
