Title: Economic cost of football at Midland High School
Author: Franks, Hugh M.
Abstract: A consistent adage in West Texas , as In many other parts of the state , Is that a high school football program not only pays for Itself but generates enough revenue to support other athletic programs , for both males and females , of the school . It is this assertion that prompted interest In this study . As is the case with most public institutions , the methods of accounting for various costs within a school system are quite different than those used by a private , profit -motivated entity . In addition , as with all social goods , the benefits of the activities of public schools are quite difficult to monetize , thus creating problems in the application of any standard economic evaluation along the lines of a cost -benefit analysis ; more regarding this concern will be provided toward the conclusion of this study . With that in mind , the focus of this study is to assess the total economic cost of the football program at a single public high school for a one -year period . The school In question is Midland High School (MHS ) in Midland , Texas ; the time period Is the 1995 -1996 school year .
