Pay to Play?
What if sports budgets were completely "out of pocket"? West Essex school system in New Jersey has gone to a "Pay to Play" system for middle and high school sports. This school system has the second highest property taxes in the country and they found that this is the only way to keep the sports programs alive. Students on free or reduced lunch don't have to pay, however, for everyone else - it's Pay or Don't Play.
