    The OHSAA has begun discussing the possibility that fall sports could be delayed

    Most teachers and administrators have a 12 month salaried contract that pays them through snow days, etc. My guess is they get paid whether working or not. Many schools are working with Zoom or other software, teaching online. Typically 85% of school budgets are payroll. Coaches...

    The future of EdChoice

    Think of the great service private schools are doing for the entire state! They are giving over 13% of our kids great educations at a significant savings to taxpayers.

    The future of EdChoice

    So, at least the best students in public schools who transfer to private schools really do better than the students at the public schools they left. Typical of public schools to lie about private, and particularly religious, schools. That applies in athletics and academics. While top students...

    The future of EdChoice

    It’s not consistent at all. You can’t say private schools take the best students, and also say they do worse on tests. Private schools consistently do a great job of preparing good students for tests (and life, for that matter). They generally are not good at vocational and special needs...

    The future of EdChoice

    So my kid is forced to stay in such a situation because I’m too poor to send her to private school, where they don’t have such obstacles to teaching?

    The future of EdChoice

    I see. They’re the smartest ones, but do worse on standardized tests. Consistency of talking points isn’t your strength.

    The future of EdChoice

    Each voucher takes a small amount of money from your kid’s school, but it also relieves your school of a much larger amount of expense. That’s a huge benefit to your kid’s school! Why would you be against that?

    The future of EdChoice

    Only if it’s incremental. From the whining you would think it’s the only way privates survive, while driving publics to bankruptcy.

    The future of EdChoice

    It costs much more than the voucher amount to educate a student. For just voucher students, getting less than $7,000 for each kid on a voucher when it costs over $10,000 to educate that kid saves the public school over $3,000. Per voucher. In addition, private schools are doing public schools...

    The future of EdChoice

    So, what we should do is take all kids down to the lowest possible level because a lot or even most are more comfortable there, and condemn a lot of kids to failure? Why not give kids who want out a chance?

    GCL Co-ed 2020

    That’s hilarious! Crying is what brought on the wonderfully dishonest CBP, and it wasn’t GCL schools doing the crying!

    Division III State Championship: Trotwood-Madison (11-3) vs. Mansfield (13-1)

    Congratulations to TM! Fantastic achievement, showing great coaching, community support and player buy-in. Talent, discipline and a lot of heart showed through the whole game. The Rams will remember lessons from overcoming a lot of adversity their whole lives. Much success to all of you in...

    Disappointing/Surprising Teams.

    Excuses from a school with over 2500 students? Can’t find 20 or 30 players? My Knights didn’t meet their own expectations, but did enough to get to the regional semis. That’s the final 4 of 27 mostly larger schools, in a final 8 that contained half of our league. Birds, you’ve always been...

    Public vs Private Breakdown

    Because CJ, which is not a diocesan school, was getting kids from Alter and Carroll districts. Alter and Carroll asked either everybody has districts or nobody. The decision was nobody.

    Kettering Alter vs. Badin Week 12

    A reasonable prediction. Alter was horrible in the last Badin game. Penalties, missed blocks and tackles, abandoned coverages, general lack of anything productive. A young Alter team, looked like freshmen all around. Badin, on the other hand, looked like an Alter team. Disciplined...

    Top 32 vs Current system. Inside the numbers

    If the format would change, good teams would schedule differently. The regular season has to mean something, but the Harbin system doesn’t necessarily get the top teams all the time. In other words, there’s some arbitrariness in the selection system. Folks could argue that a TD should...

    2019 GCL Coed

    CJ has whomever they have. Alter’s challenge is to overcome the best team in the GCLC this year. It can be done, against the odds. Go Knights!
