I went with a fox site, but the articles are similar at the other sites too.
In a nutshell:
The new Eagle Stadium, located in a booming suburb just north of Dallas, will merely rank fifth in the state among facilities used for Friday night football on a weekly basis.
But it's that $60 million price tag...
...Allen raised the money for its new stadium as part of a $119.4 million bond package in May of 2009 that passed with an impressive 63.66 percent of the vote.
So the voters passed a $120 million bond, of which half went to build a stadium - 1 stadium at 1 high school.
Entire schools can be build for a fraction of that cost. (IIRC, the school our district is planning is around $17 million; I'll look it up if anyone wants me to verify.)
So what do you think? Is it just up to the voters to set building a high school stadium as a priority over any other education-related issue?
