The Lawrence school district continues work on new athletic fields at the city's two high schools, despite opposition from neighbors of Lawrence High School.

Schools districts short 25%, what's the odds that will shut down work soon?
You beat me to it srj....Breaking news: State about 25% short in payments... Then you see this. Money should go to education first...not these damn fields.
This money CAN'T go to the classrooms. Talk to the state about that one.Lawrence already maxes out the local-option budget, and this money (for capital improvements) cannot be allocated to the classrooms. Stupid, perhaps, but still the law.
Then the state should yank this money and give it to a school that needs to use it for education.
Where's the 14 million? plus operating expenses? That money could have been better spent here:http://www2.ljworld.com/polls/2007/oct/how_should_school_district_pay_20_million_maintena/
