Well, the question i would have is can Junior make the cut? See my last post.
EDIT: If Junior can make the cut, is it unfair to Secundus and Tertius who aren't that good?
Right... I'd tend to think it is unfair. Still not sure, but the private school thing doesn't seem right to me. (Being able to choose between the private school team and the public school team in your district if you go to a private school.)
I'm reading up on this a bit, various observations about cherry picking resonate. What if homeschoolers want to take a single awesome creative writing class? Or be in the school play? Or go to the school just for "free period" so they can hang out with the friends they've made in football?
Not to get all slippery slope on this question, but it does seem like at some point either they go to the school or they don't.
I think some sort of Title IX sort of provision could maybe work -- if they have no other sports options, they can try out for the public school team. (Like girls playing on the boys' basketball team if there is not a girls' basketball team.)
The VA bill is evidently temporary -- it would expire in 2017. I can imagine just trying it and seeing how it works out.
