The Untold Story of High School Economy

Every year kids in high school flock out in bunches to try out for high school sports teams. Some of those kids will have the opportunity to represent their school in a sport and others will have to deal with the failure of not making the team. However, beyond the obvious story lines, lay the elephant in the room:  The economy of high school and in pairing high school sports.  Underneath the surface of all the competition and achievement is the ugly, dirty, money.  How much parents spend, how much schools make, and how much it costs to run sports programs and ultimately where that can fit in a school districts budget, if at all.  This blog will run through issues regarding the economy of high schools and their sports teams, from why high schools cut programs  to what parents and kids are doing to stop their programs from getting the axe.
