Taxpayers will Cover most Operating Costs of LeBron James’ School - Sports Gossip
Well the LeBron Love-fest didn't last very long

LeBron doing good things lasted a short while. Now it back to bashing the Los Angeles Lakers star. Akron’s taxpayers will be shelling out for as much as 75 percent of the costs for the school, a far sight more than was previously assumed.

According to, “The exact breakdown of expenses for the new I Promise School is unclear… But the district will pay more than half the costs — perhaps around 75 percent — once it is fully running.”

“The coverage made it look like the whole thing is his,” Akron school district spokesman Mark Williamson told the media this week. “He did a lot, but taxpayers should know it’s their investment too.”

James has already given $2 million, but according to reports, this sum covers only two grades and only a quarter of the total costs.

Tax payers pay money for schools. That's what public education *is* tax payers, however, are *not* paying any more for the students who attend this school than they are for students who attend other Akron schools. Let the good deed go unpunished.
