The new field sounds well and good but does anyone know how many teachers are going to be laid off in the county system?

Sports can be a very important part of the school and even education, but not if it takes precedent over the education...

Baseball and football players make a hell of a lot more money than teachers! :mrgreen:

The money used for the field can only be used for construction. Not for salaries or other types of classroom support.

The guy who owned Black Mountain Resources donated $1,000,000 to build the field.

I repeat: All money used on this project can only be used for construction by the school district for construction no matter it's source.

I don't believe anyone is disputing that the money has to be used for the football field. I "think" the guest was demonstrating the differences in spending on sports vs education.
