How school funding should be divided
Schools always have trouble with funding all their extracurricular activities, and all schools have their own way of dealing with it. Some schools get rid of the extracurricular activities they want the least, and some split the money within the groups, usually funding one more than the other. Two great examples are Sports and Art. Many people believe that sporting events earn a bundle of money for schools and that athletes stay fit and healthy. Others believe that visual and performing arts build character and reveal the creativity within a person. I would personally provide more funding for extracurricular sports, because I am an athlete, and I know the hard work that is put in everyday by the people that play sports. Artists work hard also but not at the same level as an athlete. No matter what sport it is, even in football, it’s the mental challenges that are harder to pass than the physical ones, and if there are people doing that, they deserve to get the money to be able to play. So, I believe that extracurricular sports should get the funding Public Schools rely heavily on state funding as well as voter approved funding to support many academic as well as sport related activities. The Spokane Public Schools is the largest school district within the Spokane area, and the second largest district in the state of Washington. The district consists of 35 elementary schools, six middle schools, and six high schools (Spokane Public Schools). Currently funding for the school district is becoming increasingly harder for the district. This paper will analyze the issue of school funding, analyze the relationship of the state or local government to the American Federal system with regard to this issue, evaluate constitutional and other legal constraints related to the policy.
