Posts Tagged ‘Palm Beach Florida’

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.
