I will be rational. If Austin school is so old that it is not worthing of having our elementary children in it... then, why would it be safe enough to have ANY children at all in it, alternative educational or otherwise???
I have a family member that lives out of town and "shopped around" before moving and choosing their children's school. she told me that the looks or the age of the facilities didn't even factor into their decision. What did was the academic programs and the athletics was just a bonus!! I mean, c'mon, you wanna talk about being rational, but honestly what is more important for the kids... the education or the athletics? YOU decide!
And I KNOW that MY kids, once they are in high school, will say that they are the only ones that deserve to use a facility that their parents voted on with the knowledge that ALL students would get to use. **The last time that I checked... football is NOT the only sport in Sulphur Springs, either!**
