Aye.  My high school, which is hardly funded by a wealthy tax base, got rid of the cinder track and mangled grass football field and installed all-season turf (with rubber pellets to make it softer) and composite track.  And like you said, it's not like it's a school with a storied athletic pedigree.  Indoors, the old gym was completely renovated; a second gym was added, and the pool was completely reconstructed and reconfigured.  Enrollment is roughly 2/3 of what it was when I graduated.  What the fuck??

They consolidated our small high school with another small high school nearby. 

This was done under the message that it will save money for taxpayers and create better academic opportunities. They said they needed to have a new school to attract businesses to the area. 

They built a new multi-million dollar high school with all the bells and whistles and state-of-the-start sports facilities.  Three separate fields.  Tennis courts and swimming pool.  The football locker rooms are like mini condos. 

The sports teams suck because they got moved up in class. Drug use had increased.  Academics and test scores have decreased.

His younger brother, who I'm close with, went to Appalachian State, public school, one hour from here. He got a degree in finance. Younger brother works in Charlotte now, 25 years old, making good money working for some bank, I can't remember where, but his older brother, with the poly-sci degree, interned for Senator Richard Burr and was all giddy about it, just KNEW he was going to be a big deal in politics...he's currently making $35k a year working for a police department near Charlotte, in the office lol..dude prob is sitting on $80k in student loan debt because he HAD TO GO to the big private school here. That is why I say fuck em all, he knew what he was getting in to..

But if he had gone into politics, the connections he made could have paid off for him. Not advocating it, but there are some small advantages to going to a "name" university

In almost every field "name" universities matter A LOT.  When I was a recruiter for Goldman and J.P. Morgan, you basically weren't considered for the analyst programs if you didn't go to an Ivy League.  If you're going to be a dental hygienist or administrative assistant then of course it makes no sense to burden yourself with debt for a job where you will make $50,000 no matter what.  But for many high-level jobs, you pretty much have to, and hope that it pays off.

Did you also have to walk uphill both ways to go to school? :tongue:

It's funny you mention that. So back when I was 7 my parents finalized their divorce. We moved with our mother to downtown Toronto, but for some reason she decided we still needed to go to this Montessori school, 20 miles north. For the first year she would drive us, and then a teacher who lived close by would drive us home. After 1 year she decided it was too much. So the 2nd year I was 8, and my sisters were 7 and 5. We would take public transit, 2 buses and a Subway to school each way every day...@ 1 hr 15 to 1 hr 30 minutes each way depending on wait time for buses.  Even by kid commuting standards it sucked ass.

I expected this proposal to get squashed pretty quickly but it is still in the headlines. Anybody think this (or a scaled down version such as $10,000) is going to pass?
