    Hey, I am all for teaching the foundations and morals of the Bible in a public school like they do in a private school, but we have been told we can't "join them."

    Nope, I disagree. The classes are set-up to make sure that your competing against a school of similar enrollment. I will never be convinced that some of those Lexington 4A schools are NEVER as talanted as the Trinity and St. X teams. At some point people need to look in the mirror and question their dedication, support, and their coach's ability before they decide to just exile the programs who are doing it right.

    LBBC, I'll let HighHopes post answer your previous post for me. If he doesn't mind. This is where public schools should be "joining them." I'm strictly speaking about athletics.

    Stickymitts,
    How will they call themselves state champions"?

    How does ST.x or Trinity the year before call themselves state champions? They didn't compete against or beat all of the other class champions.

    So, Moore can't accept a kid from any part of the county, that wants to be a part of the Graphic Communications program?

    As the superintendent and the proposal addresses, what about the other sports. HS athletics contrary to what is believed is not all about football. As the article stated 41% of all sports state championships since 1995 were won by 17% of the schools, private schools.

    They have dorms for selected students. I'm not making this up.

    Exactly. I don't blame the public school system for doing something against this, finally. There is a stigma with private schools that needs to be cleared up and the KHSAA may be doing that with their latest proposal.

    And it's just ironic that private schools have won 41% of state titles since 1995 - maybe divine intervention?

    Yep but I'm not talking about that part. I'm talking about at Moore and a bunch of other public schools, there are lots of kids that they would rather not have because they make bad grades and don't care. They get in disciplinary trouble. Moore can't kick them out if they are in the home school area. Male and Butler don't have that problem because they have no assigned home school area. They can kick out or accept anyone.

    What are the disciplinary procedures? There has to be a limit, otherwise schools like Beuchel wouldn't exist.

    Anyone have the breakdown between girls sports and boys sports? I'm willing to be the great majority of those are girls and they're in sports like swimming, track, lacross, field hockey, etc.

    You would be kidding yourself if you think this is anything outside of football, baseball, and basketball.

    Two words for Mr Sears: TOUGHEN UP!
    You can't just exile people because they are better than you.

    Since Lex Catholic and Sacred Heart have won the past 5 state basketball titles in girls, you can throw basketball in there too. And I believe Assumption or Notre Dame passes around the volleyball title. Sacred Heart hed the state title in volleyball, soccer and basketball all in the same season 2-3 years back. Presently, they are #1 in the state and ranked nationally in soccer. Did not Owensboro Catholic not win the state softball title recently?

    Looks like the public schools have some work to do. Well, besides kicking these schools out of the KHSAA.

    lots of discipline measures. Basically you go to Buechel if you are a repeat offender, like a big repeat offender and you do serious stuff such as fight a lot or bring drugs into school. You take a timeout and go to Buechel for awhile, or you just get suspended but if that student lives in the home school area the school has to take him or her back. At Male and Butler they just kick those kids totally out of the school and never have to deal with them again. Or they look at their middle school records and decide that they don't want to accept them before they get there.

    They should scrap Magnets and all this extra bussing and build another alternative school in my opinion. Discipline is what messes up the classroom experience and prevents the full learning experience.
