Worst School Board In The Nation
I’m Surprised It’s NOT In Wash. D.C.
Don Surber blogs from the Daily Mail:
Most of Buffalo’s kids don’t graduate from high school, yet its school board members traveled first class on $90,000 worth of trips and dined on catered meals before each school board meeting — at a cost of $33,000.
And then the members of the worst school board in the nation don’t appreciate a typical menu of “egg rolls, shrimp lo mein, General Tso’s chicken, pepper steak, sesame chicken, cheesecake, cookies and flan, among other goodies.”
That was last week’s menu.
Sheesh. The D.C. area schools are known for union members that stole $5 million from the teacher’s pension fund. That was simple theft. This, this is simple stupidity.
“It’s not a high-end buffet, and it’s not a lot of it, either. It serves like 20, 30 people maybe,” board member Ralph Hernandez told the Buffalo News. “The administrators eat there, too, the superintendent and associate superintendents. Most of us don’t even eat it. We’re sick of it, and it’s the same stuff all the time.”
Uh-huh. The Buffalo school system spends over $16,000 per student. I see how that’s possible.
