The charter and private schools are the biggest problem, not the parochial schools. Except for AB Wood and N-G, the parochial schools are not dominating the PIAA championships.

The parochial schools have their up and down cycles just like regular public schools. Out west here, for ex, Quigley Catholic had a run of really good teams and now they are in a down cycle having only 9 girls on their varsity last year. GCC had a run in boys in the mid-2000s, now they aren't having as much success. Same with Pgh Central Cath. TBH, I think the parochial schools do a better job with girls sports than similarly sized public schools.

I agree bfgrad, the charter schools should have been lumped in with the parochial schools. They do the same thing - they find "sponsors" to pay a player's tuition (they buy athletes).

The charter schools are tuition-free since the home public school has to pay the tuition out of its budget.

BTW, Bernstein, the bill's author, is BF's state rep. He lives in Riverside's school district that abuts BF and Ellwood City school districts. There aren't any parochial schools consistently dominating any sport in Beaver County.

The charter schools are supposed to be established to provide better academics. They don't need athletic teams. If a kids wants to play sports, play at the home school district.
