Open Enrollment and Its Affect On Sports In EG

I recently wrote a story in the Elk Grove Citizen how open enrollment has affected the sports programs in the Elk Grove Unified School District.

Please understand in the story I in no way am saying the coaches in the district are recruiting kids to their programs, quite the contrary. The parents are recruiting other parents and their student/athletes to schools outside of their attendance area.

What is happening, as the story points out, is that half the EGUSD sports programs are strong and the others weak with almost no one in between.
