    Home school and public school sports

    I don't have as much of an issue with the boy that defaulted in the match against the girl as I do the fact that he is home schooled and representing a public school. If the public school system isn't good enough to educate him, why is the schools sports good enough to play on? The sports teams represent the school. The kid doesn't go to the school so why should he get to represent it? I understand there aren't home school athletic teams, but they choose not to send their kid to public school so that's the price they should pay.

    I think they should get to play just like anyone else, you'll just be able to pick them out easily because they'll be the weird, awkward one that always wears long pants.

    Re: Home school and public school sports

    It's the exact same thing with a small private school in the same community as a large public school. If the small private school doesn't offer a certain sport (swimming, soccer, etc.) they join the large public school that does offer that sport. Those people still pay the state to fund the programs so they should be able to have access to them if they choose. A lot of times it can make a team stronger.

    Plus often home-schooled kids go to school for other activites like band and choir. Sometimes they even go to a handful of classes that the parents aren't capable of teaching (some sciences or upper-level math, usually).

    Ohh no 3TrueFans. According to some this post is showing your ignorance. We wouldn't want to upset them now.

    or in my case, we didn't offer soccer, so a kid played for one of sioux city's schools which was 15 miles away.

    This is one of the big thing's I don't think a lot of people realize. Once the kids get to the high school level it is rare that the parents or the home school organization they use are able to teach the high level subjects that lets face it a lot of home school kids excel in. As also stated band and choir are also utilized by home school kids. If they can do band and choir why not athletics?

    That makes zero sense.

    The school benefits from getting the full property tax revenue from the family and doesn't have to do anything in return regarding an outlay of resources to educaten the kid...other than let them play on a team. The schools probably comes out ahead financially. Am I wrong?

    Funny coming from an Irishman. The kids at my predominantly Irish-Catholic high school who wanted to swim had to do so at a local public high school since we didn't have a pool/swim team. Since all of our parents paid taxes the public schools were cool with it.

    Huh? I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean, it seems contradictory. The parents can't teach it so the students excel in it?


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.
