UIL could introduce 6A in Texas

The University Interscholastic League is again floating the possibility of creating a Class 6A.
UIL Executive Director Charles Breithaupt said Monday "it's
more likely now than ever" that the 1,200 high schools playing
football in Texas might be realigned into six classes of roughly
equal sizes.
Under the proposal, four schools from every district in every
classification would make the playoffs. Class 5A and 4A districts
are currently the only ones to advance four teams from each
district.
Breithaupt said the proposal is one of several that school
districts will be surveyed about this fall.
Breithaupt said the plan differs from previous calls to create a
"superconference" of the 100 or so biggest high schools in the
state.

    Yeah that would reduce class sizes but how many districts could afford to build a new school. For example: If Sherman could go 6A then that means we should build another school. Well just a coulple months ago we were saying we can't afford to drive long distances but we could afford to build another school. I just don't see the logic in that.

    Instead of creating a class 6A why not limit the number of students to a maximum of 1200 enrollment. Build new schools. This would reduce class sizes, and provide that all of the larger high schools were more or less equal. Creating the 6A classification will not change anything. The small 5A schools will stay the same and the bigger 5A schools are re-classifed as 6A. Same old same old. You can call a skunk a frog if you want but it still stinks.
