Have to disagree with your pitiable rant osuboy91. You make alot of generalizations and accusations without much, if anything to support them. Why don't you list the actual salaries of some Private School Coaches along with the salaries of a few Public School Coaches to validate your argument. Of course there are wealthy families that send their children to private schools, just as there are wealthy kids going to public schools. I don't know how it breaks down percentage wise, do you? I personally know two sets of parents at the Lynden Christian School that work a couple of jobs to keep their kids enrolled there. Counting this year, going back 20 years, Public Schools have won 10 State Titles in 1A and Private Schools have won 10 State Titles. If you go back 30 years it's 20-10 Public over Private. If you go ack 40 years it's 28-12 Public over Private. If you go ack 50 years it's 38-12 Public over Private. I'm having difficulty seeing the unfair advantage Private Schools enjoy over Public Schools that you are inferring exists. As far as recruiting, it's done by Public and Private Schools, although not nearly as much as people think. And please spare me the notion that Public Schools can't do it. Surely you've heard of Rainier Beach H.S.
