How Do School Levy Limits Affect Your Kids?

In Madison, student athletes pay a participation fee of $115 per sport. And some
sports have surcharges as high as $400 on top of the participation fee.

Rising fees reduce participation. Period.

What do kids who can't afford to participate do? Oh, I'm sure they'll find something.
