$662,000 Basketball Locker Rooms vs. $200,000 Gym and Locker Rooms Renovation

New bleachers? Shiny lockers? School challenges intensify.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 5/1/2015)

In this corner.
Arrowhead High School in Hartland had just completed new $662,000 locker rooms for its basketball teams, and posted a time-lapse look at what it billed as "the best high school locker rooms in the country."

And in the other corner.
Compare that with the situation facing Case High School in Racine. In April, it began a $200,000 renovation of its field house, which includes a gymnasium and locker rooms. Case is renovating to remove half-century-old asbestos-based paint in the gym floor and in the tiling of the locker room showers. The funding comes entirely from an $8.5 million per year referendum passed by voters last fall.
