DCSS Board of Education Meeting 12/06/2010
Action Item K-9
This is the latest quote from our interim superintendent when asked by Paul Womack why were schools allocated 100% increase in funding when they are failing.
"These are stimulus funds that we have received and we need to spend them."
"We got more money!"
This seems to be the overriding theme from our school system for the last few years.
Our school system is a child with a checkbook. There is no empirical evidence that there is any benefit or positive result from these programs.
The board has ok'd the approved spending with no results, just a wink and a nod that the details will be explained later.
I am appalled at the philosophy from our interim superintendent that we need to spend the money because "We Got More Money!"
