Tom Crawford: As school starts, the games over the games begin
Placeholder Image
Another school year is underway in our state, which means that it’s time to start complaining about the Georgia High School Association. The folks at GHSA have the thankless task of administering and scheduling the games between high school athletic teams, while trying to ensure that everyone plays on an equal footing. “What we want is competitive parity on the field,” said state Sen. Charlie Bethel, R-Dalton, who chairs a legislative committee that oversees GHSA. As part of that mission, GHSA is preparing to reclassify the 455 high schools that they regulate, placing schools at various enrollment levels in geographic regions for athletic competition purposes.
