I do not know how much extracurricular athetics cost taxpayers. If state education funding is at a critical point, lets eliminate this "nice" to have. If parents want their kids to participate in sports, enroll them in "club" sports.
I believe the state of Nevada eliminated athletics in junior highs, with the exception of boys and girls basketball.
Savings would come in: Coaching salaries, team uniforms, team equipments, travel, busing, janitorial contracts, wear and tear on school facilities.1 vote
