Consider retooling IHSAA classifications

I wish the IHSAA would take a look at the classification system for high school athletics. It has been obvious for some time that, in the name of fairness, something needs to be done about private schools located in large population areas.

I have heard there is consideration of moving the private schools up one class. I do not feel this would be adequate. Two classes would be more realistic, but I would favor classifying private schools based on the population of the public school district in which they are located, or upon their enrollment, whichever would place them higher.
