I guess it was paid for by tax dollars. I would be pissed if my tax dollars went to pay for a $750,000 jumbo screen.
And the kids need free lunches
Wow, just wow.
High school football needs to stay high school football.
The high school player will have the chance to a jumbotron thing in college and the nfl. If they're good enough to make it.
A 3a football program the town has 6k people the Carthage isd has less than 3k students. Lol it passed with 68.6% of the votes
Amazingly when school budgets are cut the word "Athletics" never enters the discussion.
Smh, i love football as much as the next guy/girl but our priorities need to get a good hard look on this one.
In this state? Not likely. Under an old principal we had coaches bragging that they kept starters on the Football team elligible by putting them in all Advanced Placement classes. The reason for this being the LOWEST grade you can give an AP student is a 70. Put all of your athletes in AP even if they don't belong there and they remain elligible.
The only people hurt are students who would have otherwise taken up those Advanced Placement slots and the teachers who have to contend with athletes who never show up, disrupt classes or simply don't do anything in class. It's a "victimless" crime unless you consider educators, kids who deserve to be in advanced placement classes and taxpayers to be "victims" in this scenario.
Wait, what? How does that policy make any sense at all...
