Not true whatsoever.... Example: Let's just say I move my family from wboro to the Greece Athena school district when school ended in June.... You trying to say my kids wouldn't be able to play football in the fall in Greece because it hasn't been 6 months. That's just stupid. My kids could play football at wboro in the fall and if I moved to Utica as soon as football ended my kids would immediately be eligible for winter sports at proctor!
A change of address is all you need to transfer and immediately be eligible on your new district!

Very few of the ND parents care. A few of the parents of football players who are upset about Abraham leaving care. That's it. Don't try to make it sound like the whole school is upset because the football coach and a few players won't be there next year. It's not true.

You will feel differently once this all shakes out. ND will not be the same after all this. Athletics mean more for a successful ND than you realize. Other private schools that are thriving embrace the importance of the sports programs and point out how many of the students participate. ND has made many mistakes recently. Can you really believe that losing 10 or more kids who bring a lot to the school plus their families support is no big deal?

I stand corrected .. The parents who CARE about N.D. And the future of the school are upset.
Any parent should take interest in the goings on at their child's school for not everything is always sports related .

There are a lot of ND parents who CARE about the future of the school but could give a wit about Abraham leaving and about the football program. The school is not about football. Football can be a part of education but it's not an integral part. A lot of people who have posted here seem to think that the football program is the school. It's not and never has been.

Only let the KNEEGROID run at school, but keep your children far from the kneegroid as these things are useless and will contaminate the humans.

Do you want to end up like Chicago, or any other city that has a high population of the groid.

During a Chicago school visit earlier this month to the site where a black honor student was beaten to death by a mob of black students, Attorney General Eric Holder stated that growing youth violence in America is not just "a black problem," but a problem for all races. The trouble with this statement is that it is statistically untrue.

Youth violence may not be solely a black problem, but it is primarily a black problem.

Consider, by race, the contributing factors of prison incarceration and school suspension. Blacks are imprisoned and suspended three times more frequently than the rest of the US population, and as much as six times more frequently than their white, Asian, and Latino counterparts.

The question is not whether young blacks, particularly males, get involved in violent incidents more frequently than other races. The question is why.

White and black liberals blame this disparity on a racist society that misinterprets and discriminates against black culture.

White and black conservatives explain these statistics as the result of less respect for the law, caused solely by poor parenting. They cite as proof that high-achieving blacks have been well-parented.

This is not a new problem. Consider a memo written in 1965 to President Lyndon Johnson from Assistant Labor Secretary Daniel Moynihan in which the secretary expressed his great concern over the high rate of out-of-wedlock births among blacks (25 percent at that time). Unaddressed, Mr. Moynihan predicted, this large number of fatherless children would result in increasing school failure, criminal delinquency, and joblessness. Sadly, because liberals across the board condemned this call for action as racist propaganda, President Johnson didn't want to risk heated public debate and so did nothing.

The recent Chicago incident, and countless others that occur daily, are the result of not heeding Moynihan's warning 44 years ago. The previous out-of-wedlock birthrate has almost tripled, and 7 out of 10 black children now grow up not only without a father, but also in disproportionate poverty. That means millions of young kids lack adequate parental guidance to make the transition to become successful adults.

So of course unparented black kids act up and get in trouble more. Any racial group would do the same. The starting point for reducing our nation's youth violence must begin at home. We need our elected public officials to acknowledge this.

A specific call for black parental accountability would be a strong first step in avoiding future tragedies like the one in Chicago.

No not yet

There has not been a coach hired yet. There are a bunch of interviews to do yet. All though if you talk to certain people they would like you to believe that a person has been hired. This is just a rumor started by haters of the program.
