Cities Should Not Pay For New Stadiums

Open for discussion:

Beyond the obvious large sports stadiums, local high schools are among the worst offenders.

Tax levies for ‘schools’ often pass despite much of that spent on new sports fields meant for the exclusive use of sports teams that constitute only a very small percentage of the student body population (not to mention the overall population).

Meanwhile, schools will not even have safe ways for children to ride bikes to school and bus service cannot even be properly maintained. :confused:

We had something like this happen in my area. We all had to pay for it, meanwhile, it did nothing for the students. Many of them still had issues getting to school, many programs within the school were shut down… It was a mess. A lot of us have been complaining.
