: : : Help me understand. Why do parents and players keep running to private schools? Especially in the OC. You run to a program and then you donít play you pay to sit and not get developed ? Whatís wrong with public schools? Hereís my two cents .... ypu make your situation great by your mindset towards it. Nobody researches good coaches anymore. Not every kid can play at private school. Then we have some who transfer from a private to a private and hope for different results ? The glitz and glamour is cute but some of these kids and parents need to experience the hunger it takes to get it out of the mud , go through some hard seasons and learn how lead, be better mentally as well as other things. A lot of these kids need to humble pie because many of the kids think if they go private it just falls in place. A lot of you need to really open your eyes to what youíre getting into. Everything that glitters isnít gold!
: : A lot of parents do it because of the actual education and the fact your resume shows a private school instead of a public school. Itís not solely based on basketball and playing time. Some of these parents are actually smart because they realize Jr ainít going to be a stud in college so they try to get them a good education and hopefully it continues through college.
: My daughter was the last kid on the bench on a TL varsity. Thought of transferring to a place where she'd play much more never entered into our equation. Basketball was part of a bigger picture-academic and moral formation was the main reason she was there and didn't want to leave.
IMO, it is best to stay with local public school providing it offers an opportunity for quality education. Sports are secondary but not to private schools. The problem with the private schools that represent themselves as "Religious Schools" send the wrong message hiding behind the cloth. Using teenagers to show their schools as state and national athletic powers. It would be better for these so-called Religious schools to call themselves as Academies. IE Montverde Academy.
