Charlotte Mecklenburg School officials have decided that instead of firing bloated administrators to make up the budget shortfall, they will cut all middle school sports.Simply stated: this is the most outrageous and stupid decision I have seen yet from my local school board.
My kids go to private school so why should I care?? Simple. Middle school is when kids start to make bad decisions. Not having something to do after school is opening the door for kids to get into trouble. And the kids most at risk are those that can least afford it.
CMS says it costs $1.2 million to keep middle school sports. With a budget of over $1 billion, are they seriously telling the community they can’t find this money??
