Yes, and if the government is going to spend the money here or there it might as well be here. They are going to spend the money regardless. UNTIL the system changes the way it works, it is foolish to refuse the money.

That level of spending to play a game is foolish no matter where it comes from. The district should be seeking funds to improve education, not a provide a sports experience for a few kids. Such spending teaches kids nothing more than they would learn playing a pickup game at the rec center or running competitively in community events. An expensive sports complex does nothing to teach kids the skills needed to perform real work or a find career.

You don't have to be a jock to learn Wooden's lesson. He would have espoused the same principles if he was coaching a bird-watching team in a swamp -- at no cost to the taxpayers. Just because Wooden was a great coach doesn't support your position. Where does Wooden say: "I want mine at the expense of everyone else?" In each of those tenets, not once does he mention that me or other taxpayers should write him a check.

"none of the Indians pay school taxes and they continue to send their kids to school on our buses."

.....but the Amish and Mennonite communities pay school taxes and don't use our school system so it averages out.

However, the theory has always been that, since educating our children benefits everyone, it is everyone's responsibility to help support it; ergo "public" education.

From the editorial staff of the Finger Lakes Times:

"Those priorities again"

A lot of folks like their football in the Finger Lakes, but have you heard about the new $60 million facility in Allen, Texas, that seats 18,000 fans and has a 38-foot HD video screens? What’s the big deal, you ask? It was built for Allen High School.
