re: On the eve of the LHSAA Convention, what would you do regarding the split? - bigcatfish
I never said all of them are doing it. Yes they do take lower academic students if they are good athletes. I have had experience with private schools. The ones I have had experience with do recruit and it is not a level playing field. ...

re: On the eve of the LHSAA Convention, what would you do regarding the split? - bigcatfish
They do not play by the same set of rules. Private schools do not have to accept students if they do not want to. Therefore, they can control their enrollment numbers and they can control their classification. The private schools do not have to give their students the EOC tests like public schools. ...

re: Ben Simmons Game #2 (Montverde vs Karr) - bigcatfish
I was at the game also. He is good, real good. I think his overall basketball skills are just as good as Lebron's when he came out. With that said, Lebron was a superior athlete. I am not one that bleeds purple and gold, but this kid is the real deal as far as skills go. ...

So much emphasis is placed on accountability now in the public school systems. Most people do not understand how an SPS is calculated. If people knew the lengths t...
