So I guess Timpview isn't moving to 5A?And Bingham isn't
moving to the NCAA??
Thank goodness this was voted down. It was one of the most anti-competitive and
unfair rule I've heard of.
As an advocate for looking at socio-economic factors for classification, I can
live with this compromise of sorts. My major concern, as I have expressed on
these blogs before, that those at the lower end of the classification numbers,
be able to make a case for a lower classification and that case may be these
challenges. I imagine that schools like Granger or Ogden might consider making
a case to drop to a lower classification, which to me sounds fine.
I agree with Eagle.It seems that if the socio-economic status of a
school is the real issue, then using those factors as part of the algorithm to
sort schools would be the solution. Instead of only numbers, what if they
looked specifically at the socio-economic situation in the schools in the bottom
10-15% of a given class as ranked by student numbers, and used that to determine
a few more bubble schools??
