Another private vs. public school question
To that, Kosmo has one question. What's the difference between that and college?
Listen, Kosmo does believe that private schools do offer scholarships or financial aid.
The only thing is this. Signing day ceremonies are rightfully celebrated by parents, coaches and administrators, because they commemorate an athlete getting to not only play sports in college, but get some scholarship money, in some cases a full ride.
It's a great thing to celebrate, as kids who wouldn't otherwise be able to go to college are able to do so because of athletic ability.
So why is this so frowned upon when a kid decides to accept some financial aid or scholarship money to go play in high school based on athletic ability?
It's always great when kids play for the school districts they live in, but given it's a free country and all, they do have a right to go to a private school. If they feel they can have an opportunity for a better education via athletics, then what's wrong with that?
Those who celebrate college signings shouldn't at the same time moan and groan about when the shoe is on a foot of a high school kid. For those that do, Kosmo hopes they know how to spell the word "Hypocrite."
