Solution to crumb rubber: Sell the playground equipment, pave the playground

After donating $1,000 for the new playground equipment at the elementary school, I realize it was a bad decision and I apologize.

Considering the district has to cut $700,000 from its budget, we are facing some tough choices. The first thing we should do is sell the playground equipment and pave the playground of the elementary school. This would make the school more ADA accessible, solve the crumb rubber problem, and defuse yet another discrimination lawsuit.
