Abstract

In states like Illinois, controversial enrollment multipliers have been implemented. Under Illinois' formula, a "non-boundaried" school will have its actual enrollment multiplied by 1.65 for determining the classification in the State's high school playoff system. This formula is not unique to Illinois; states nationwide have begun to evaluate ways at curbing the disproportionate amount of championships won by private schools. In some of these states, a multiplier system has been implemented while others have used separate playoff systems or drafted proposals limiting the boundaries from which private schools can draw their students.
