In our county, the school board sets the millage rate for taxes, and the county adds to them. Today I paid my taxes, $50 more than last year. Why you ask? Well the football team needed a new weight training room, large enough that they can run passing plays inside in inclement weather. Plus the stadium needs new lighting. We  may have the current 6-AAAAAA State Champion team, and are currently undefeated with no team even scoring against them. However, I don't agree with all this emphasis on Football. I wouldn't say much if the increase was for school resource officers, books or teacher salaries. However I will complain about paying for a Football program that benefits a very small percentage of students in comparison to something that benefited all students. 
Walt,
Had I done everything right throughout my life, the World wouldn't have noticed.

I know folks that resent paying any taxes going toward schools... they reason that they paid school taxes when ther children were in school.

Doh.
