An Example Of What Is Wrong With Public Schools

Today the Kentucky High School Athletic Association's Delegate Assembly voted to have separate sports championships for public and private schools. This outrageous act of cowardice was intended to benefit the public schools.

It will do the opposite.

Or it would, if this foolishness were to stand. Cooler heads are sure to prevail. But this was the act of school superintendents. It is this kind of thinking that will eventually sink the public schools in America. If you have to change the rules to make it look like you are improving, you aren't really fooling anyone but yourself.
