    The REAL argument here is "recruiting." It's not fair for public schools to compete on the gridiron or hardwood with students from their community or communities that their school services, while they are facing private school opponents that can "recruit" the best talent statewide with financial aid or a dorm to live in and the promise of winning a championship.
    They do not recruit. Again name the last private school to be punished for wrong doing in illegal players? If I remeber correctly its only been public.

    KERA. Private schools success really took off when parents begin to pull their children out of public schools because of KERA and the demands from it.

    And I guess a private school like June Buchanan in Knott County doesn't have a dorm room system? :creepy:
    Catholic schools do not seperate needs by athletic ability. No on has proof tho show otherwise. Any kid wether your a spelling bee champ , average joe or Jim the All-American QB get the same 3rd party looking at you when it comes to financial aid.

    Do you think the demands, academically, are less in a private school?

    A kid can CHOOSE to attend a private school, so the fact that the kid CHOOSES that school means that they are improving the talent that CHOOSES to join their ranks.

    I don't really understand what you are saying here. Are you saying that part of the justification for separating the public from the private schools is because the private schools don't have to follow KERA?

    For some privates, No. For some privates, yes. Perception, yes.

    With the portfolios that were EXTREMELY rigid and demanding in the mid-90's, some simply chose to go private.

    Are you serious? Covington is either the 3rd or 4th largest city in the area. Yes as I said before Holy Cross is in public school disticts. Simon Kenton, Covington Holmes, and Scott. First and fore most the public schools is the number 1 option still for most famlies. If they limited HC to just Latonia or Covington then there would be no Catholic High School for the suburbs surronding such as Independence and Taylor Mill. Catholic education is an alterntative to those who don't like the public education system or want their child in a catholic educational atmosphere. There are plenty of catholic family's who prefer to save the money and send their kids to the public schools listed above. There are also non-catholic family's who prefer to spend the money to get what a Catholic eduation has to offer.

    You serisouly need to step back and understand the system. Catholic High schools are not academy's like University Heights.

    Question....how many hours of homework should the average public school student expect each night?

    Trust me, if a parent is going to shell out $7000, most families will make sure their kid is going to be happy in school, in all aspects.

    Again every private school has a public school nearby.
