I totally agree with George from Alamo...the in Alamo have it right...enough is enough. Audit the entire school system plus every other departments. And vote out all the dead wood incumbents.

Thanks for listening, Julia from Alamo

George and the rest of you are right. I might enhance George's suggestion and require every school to report their income/expenses exactly like businesses governed by Sarbanes Oxley. Let's see it all and clearly. Add in their graduation numbers and all other measurements of success teaching our kids. It's time for our schools to be accountable to the people they work for.
