Yes, it is not like they opened a new classification at all. They just dropped the bottom classification and bumped the others up. To me it is like rearranging deck chairs on a sinking ship.
The vast number of students in the student bodies in the new 5A and 6A is still huge. I think 5A starts at 1060 and goes up to 2099. That means there are going to be school competing against each other that could have almost double the student body.
I am thoroughly unimpressed and it is much ado about nothing.
