The Palm Beach County school district, one of the largest in the country, was laying off teachers while buying a TV station, and sending a chauffeured limo to drive a boy to school for months, a boy who is out on bail awaiting trial for a murder to which he had confessed!

When newspapers denounced this, the School District sent a 100 passenger school bus, totally empty, to pick up this boy and drive him all alone on the giant bus, back and forth to a magnet school for a round trip of 100 miles. The school chief said, Well, you didn’t like the limo, sooo”

The empty school bus and driver cost more than the limo, but the head of schools is so badly educated and absolutely not qualified for his job that he cannot figure out (1) this kid should not go to a magnet school, (2) that a school district head should have more brains than a dog turd.

Apparently the head of the school district was more enamored of being a star on his own TV station than in figuring out how to run the Palm Beach County School District. His most frequent comment is “Give Me More Money and All Will Be Well!” For whom?

The head of Ohio State gets paid $1,300,000 a year, plus a mansion, plus a chauffeured limo, yet he is nothing but a minor bureaucrat passing out taxpayer money without limit. His performance cannot be measured, but he gets more money every year. And both tuition and taxpayer assistance increase every year.

Obama is wrong to give colleges and schools more money. All the effort should be on improving them. Almost every school can do better on less money.

Using the comments I receive and discard as a guide, our schools are failing to teach both basic reading and writing, but also failing to teach elementary logic. I routinely delete comments that use alimentary rather than elementary logic.

In the 1990s Obama and terrorist Bill Ayres wasted $110 million in the CAC which accomplished zero, absolutely no improvement in education test scores, probably because not a penny went to any school.

Now as part of his falsely labeled “Stimulus Package” Obama wants to give more money to colleges. Here is why colleges need more money.

In this weeks Sunday newspapers they asked the President of Ohio State University if he thought colleges deserve a stimulus package. What a surprise! He thought his school desparately needs more money.

Guess his salary?

$1,300,000 a year.

Cut federal funding to colleges, and cut the salaries of every college president. They are all over paid.

The more money we give to colleges, they more they waste.

The first thing that happens is they give a raise to the college president. BS!

As soon as the government set up Sallie Mae to fund billions in student loans, the spending of colleges went up for the exact amount of the student loans.

We need an entirely new system of education.

The test scores for college graduates in reading comprehension is one point higher than for high school graduates. What a waste of four years. That one point improvement could have been achieved purely with age, not with college.
