A brand new $60 million high school football stadium they built in Texas... Teachers who just lost their jobs nationwide due to budget cuts... don't you just love the things we teach our kids?
from somone who lives in Allen. “I live in the city that built that stadium (couldn’t vote on it as we didn’t live here then) and I must say, in its defense, it was a bond voters chose. Also, the stadium wasn’t the only thing that was built. Allen Independent School Distri…ct also built a brand new performance arts theater that includes music, visual arts, and performance spaces. We also have a culinary arts building where students make and sell food in a cafe. While I am no fan of spending on football over teachers, the high school created a need to for teachers to keep the arts and kitchen filled with students. Lastly, Allen residents overwhelmingly passed a tax increase to help curtail the pain of the Legislature’s budget cuts, so we really do know our priorities.”
