Equal Opportunity Hiring

April 29, 2014
By

Even though this is 2014, equal opportunities for women and men are still far apart in some hiring practices.  I am referring to the practice of hiring women to referee boys basketball games.  Even though the quality of performance is equal, the man will get the position most of the time over a woman.  On the other hand, most of the referees for girls high school games are also men.

The only area where this is not totally true is in women’s college basketball.  Almost every game there has one woman official, and in many cases two.  I wonder when this will filter down to the high school level?  Right now it is still the good old boys fraternity for high school basketball games.
