Make the High School Playoffs Fair for All Students

Private schools represent only 14% of MHSAA schools, but they are winning two or three times as many state championships as they statistically should.  For instance, private schools have won 40% of the state titles in football, 54% in hockey, 41% in girl's basketball, and 53% in girl's soccer since the year 2000.  We believe students should not have a built in advantage based on the type of school they attend. The statistics prove that the MHSAA should consider more than enrollment in determining playoff groupings.  We are asking the MHSAA to provide state championship data to member schools and let them have a yes or no vote on implementing a competitive balance proposal.  If member schools vote yes, a second vote should be taken to pick a particular system to assure greater fairness in the playoffs.
