: School boards will do what the public is pressuring them to do....
: Principals care about their "approval rating". If parents are putting pressure on admin, they feel the heat and will make changes. All a principal wants to do is protect their $140,000.00 a year job.
How many parents are pressuring them to hire better coaches? A dozen? How many parents are pressuring them to improve standardized test scores? Probably 75% and up. Has it done any good? In any event, basketball coaching is really insignificant in the grand scheme of a high school education. And when you're strapped for cash, why should a school dole out money that benefits maybe 20 to 40 kids when they can't even keep their supply cabinets stocked?
