Re: Kentucky High School athletic proposal
The problem is that public schools have set boundries from which they may draw their students, while private schools can recruit students from anywhere in the United States. Private schools can use offers of financial aid to attract athletes from public schools. Public schools must comply with Title IX rules requiring comparable treatment of boys' and girls' sports; single-gender private schools are not subject to such rules. Single-sex private schools such as Louisville's Trinity and St. Xavier, with about 1,400 boys each, have numbers no public school can match. What's fair about that?
Private schools won 17 of 31 KHSAA championships last school year despite comprising only about 17 percent of the schools. I don't know if splitting the championships is the best solution, but something should be done to level the playing field.
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
