With talk of building a new sports arena in the Milwaukee area, we find ourselves asking, “Are we really supporting our the athletes of tomorrow in our community?”
With this in mind, Common Ground has spent months evaluating our public school athletic facilities, and today, on June 24, 2013, we unveiled our findings.
The Common Ground FAIR PLAY “Preliminary Report to the Community on the Condition of the Outdoor Public School Athletic Facilities in Milwaukee County” explains our rationale, our evaluation process and reveals the sobering inspection results.
Many of our public school athletic facilities are unsafe or unusable, if present at all.
The average salary of an NBA player $5.15 million. If public funds are used to build a place for them to play, shouldn’t our kids have a safe and functional place to play too?
It is only FAIR.
