How have we been had? so he provoked a lot of discussion on a topic that many people are passionate about. I have read numerous other posts in this
thread from people who have had or know someone who has had something very similar in nature happen to them..
Option #1 - perhaps the OP has a life and doesn't live in front of his computer.
Option #2- Our superior minds put together just wasn't enough for a person looking for "real" solutions..
If the OP was as enraged as they appeared and had as pressing a need for advice as they said, they would have been back by now. That they haven't
speaks volumes about how little the incident actually enraged them and/or how little truth the OP contains.
Maybe I'm just too old and crotchity ! Unless they're wearing blue and have a warrant, they can go to hell.
maybe I've just dealt with too dang many beaurocraps.
I agree with you to a point. Both sides are raising way too much of a stink over damn after school activities.
I was approached by football coachs my junior and senior years. I told them no thanks. I'll just keep weight lifting with my friends in phys ed
thanks. I had too many older friends with bad knees and such and their footballing got them nowhere in life.
Everything is just too damn complicated over trivial stuff. Man I miss the way it was in the 70's and 80's. Much simpler.

Forget what your rights are or are not. Call the media. Call every fricken media outlet you can. Call FoxNews, call MSNBC, etc. You'll see just
how fast this whole thing will go away as soon as over-zealous administrators (any government agency, but especially local ones) get the spot-light
turned-on them by the media.
The school district has every right to verify that a student lives within its boundaries. If your son is in fact a superstar you could possibly be
jeopardizing his ability to be noticed by a college team. Do you have any idea how many students typically register at a school they are not supposed
to attend? About 3% on average. I don't know what your school's spending per pupil is, or its population, but let's say the per pupil spending
was $15,000, lets also assume that 3% of the students didn't belong there. That is 45 students. That totals $675,000 of taxpayer money that is
going towards children that don't reside in the district.
School districts are getting tough on residency because of this. I don't know what state you live in, but I would check that out as well. If you
have lied and registered your son in a school where he doesn't belong, you are responsible for the tuition, (the per pupil spending) as well as a
fine and possibly jail time.
