My neighbor tells me she just paid $300 for her 6th grader to run middle school track. For that $$ the student gets a T-shirt (provides own shorts/pants, and running shoes), coaching and a bus to away meets. The team members ahve to get to Deer Island on their own for home meets.
If there's 30 kids on the team, that's $9000. Where's it all go ... what does a bus cost to rent these days? How many away meets are there. I doubt the town is overpaying the coach and T-shirts aren't that expensive ... so where does the money go?
Makes me glad that my kids are gone. I don't know how people can afford to send their kids to public schools these days.

Hi GrammyD. Looks like not many Winthrop folks here. For more discussion on user fees, see the post titled "High School Soccer Team Has No Uniforms" on www.whisperingwinthrop.com
