I can certainly sympathize with your Sunday School problems. The physical location is an obvious problem but there are other factors to consider:
1) Do the parents model in their own lives the importance of Sunday School?
2) Do the kids have the same curfew on Saturday night as they do on school nights?
3) Do parents place as much importance on Sunday School as they do SAT classes on Sunday?
I could go on forever....but I do believe the church should "impress" their faith on their children. You may not be able to do away with "Sunday School" but you may be able to offer something at a different time and place that is more appealing to the youth in your church! Good luck.
