Viewpoint: High School Reclassification

The latest round of reclassification by the Georgia High School Association drew complaints.

The expansion to six classes and the growth of metro Atlanta have made it increasingly difficult to classify schools in this part of the state.

That's diluted South Georgia high school athletic programs to the point that it's difficult to have region play in our own area.

It's time for the G-H-S-A to make some changes in how it places schools in classes.

While their classification decisions are made solely on enrollment numbers, we believe geography should factor into that as well.
