The price tag of a $60 million dollar high school football stadium might give some people pause, but let's remember one thing: the residents of this community voted for a bond to pay for it. In Texas. And the bond was for $119 million dollars.
If you can get YOUR community to do the same, build your stadium. Until then, why criticize the priorities of this community? They have no interest in educating their children; they just want to see the boys play football. And 63% of the people who voted for the bond are going to get to see them play football. In high school. Never mind whether they can read or write.
