Pretty soon we're all going to admit that there is no fair or perfect solution to the problem. You can't take it on a case-by-case basis because that is unfair. I am a backer of the multiplier for the special needs basis. Maybe if we just got rid of open enrollment and moved the privates back to their own tournaments then we'd all be happy. For the record I don't agree with that either.

There is no sure fire solution to the problem. Just commend them for finally trying to address it.


No you can't do that. Then we'll hear how inferior really WISAA is again. Which we all know is NOT the case. They were so inferior when they joined, but now they're so superior you want to kick them out again?



they are so superior because they now are attractive options for public school kids to play down against easier competiton.

Sometimes it is about a better education as well. I just threw that out there about them going back to their old status. I don't like the idea of it. Personally, I will be like everyone else and call them recruiters etc. I like the multiplier, either 1.5 or 1.4 because of special needs. But when it comes down to it, to be the best you still have to beat the best. It's all about raising the bar and the level of competition. The best thing would not let them be in D6 and D7. That gives the true small-school towns a chance. The population thing sounds like a good idea, or a morphed form of that idea might work. Either way, no one is going to be completely happy. I'd love to have the time to sit in on an educated conversation both for and against it. I'd love to hear both schools' sides to the argument.

The idea I like best is a multiplier for privates for special needs students because the majority of private schools do not have the staff for special needs kids. OR a subtracter to the public schools for kids that are special needs. So basically, as far as sports are concerned, special needs kids do not count towards the public school enrollment. But what would the muliplier be...like 10% then. You can't tell me that 30-40% of the kids in the public schools are special needs tp justify using a 1.3 or 1.4% multiplier

a 1.4% mulitplier would only add 14 kids per 1000, which i know at my school is about half the number of special needs students at my school without counting non-english speakers.

i think he added a % sign when he shouldn't have. a 1.4 multiplier would take the number of students times 1.4 so 1000 kids would become 1400 kids

Well it's quite obvious private schools are dominant in the smaller divisions.

They get to pick and choose who comes to their school.

That's not fair.

But at the same time moving them up into a higher division is not fair.

Some day I hope the WIAA figures a way to work with the private schools so that things are as fair as can be and the ruling can make everyone happy.

But for now, I don't think this rule lasts for long.
Got a strange magic...
