That's thirty thousand dollars just to find out whether it's feasible
to build a trail from North Webster to Wawasee Middle School.
According to Google Maps, that's 3.7 miles.
How many middle-school students could you teach the rules of the road
to for thirty grand?
How many middle-school phys ed instructors and health-class teachers
could you teach how to ride safely?
I'm reading that for U.S. teachers that:
As of May of 2018 elementary school teachers, a wide umbrella for
those who teach elementary level education to kids (excluding special education, a separate occupation with its own set of skills), had a
median annual income of $58,230.
So $30,000 is sort of chicken feed in the education field.
