MCKINNEY – Voters in McKinney, Texas, have approved construction of a 12,000-seat high school football stadium for the local high school. That’s right – a $62.8 million high school football stadium. Friday Night Lights, eat your heart out… It’s the most expensive high school stadium built to date.
Taxpayers in any community are, of course, free to spend their taxes on whatever they want. But if they think spending this much money on high school football is going to improve their kids’ future, their sadly mistaken. This is a waste of money.
