The Shelbyville News
State Sen. Jean Leising is beating a dead horse.
Earlier this month, in a story discussing her plans for 2013 General Assembly, Leising, R-Oldenburg, told The Shelbyville News that she will seek a public referendum in which every Hoosier voter will have the chance to weigh in directly on the subject of class basketball, though as of this week, she has not yet made a formal motion in the Statehouse to request the referendum.
Since 1997, when the change was made to split high school athletics postseason play into divisions by size, public sentiment has been hotly divided on if the traditional one-for-all class approach is best or if the multiple-class change was adequate.
We appreciate the sentiment behind having a widespread referendum, but it would be a waste of time.
