OSU91 - please name me ONE private school coach in a Washington State high school that makes more than Butch at Bellevue - let's see he made $59,000 for coaching football alone (not teaching) and that was over 5 years ago and in a public school.
Also, what parent doesn't send their kids to camps, AAU, etc. That's not reserved for private school parents.
Most parents would rather send their kids to a school that has a strong program that is supported by the community they live in. Personally I'm thinking of putting my parents in a senior housing center between Lynden and Squalicum so the kids can take their pick.
