your taxes at work.
    #3512818 - 12/17/04 11:04 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

http://www.startribune.com/stories/709/5142130.html

eleven people including teachers and school secretaries were indicted Thursday on fraud and theft charges in a continuing FBI probe of corruption in the city school system.

in my state it cost 12,000 dollars a year per student and they want it raised to 20,000$ per student. i always wondered why it costs almost a teachers salary to teach one student. now i know why.

Nothing to do with the cost of buildings, books etc then? It's all down to these eleven people?

when the buildings are 40 years old, the books grossly
out of date and the administrator is wearing a gold chain
it's pretty obvious that it's not all going to buildings, books
and students.

So you think everything is down to these 11 people getting jobs throughout the US education system?

Or do you believe all teachers are criminals bent on defrauding the system?

So what are you saying? You said you "now knew why" education was expensive about a story about a few criminal teachers.

New Orleans sounds like such a fucked up city. I have heard it is a cool and eccentric party place, but I have also heard that the corruption and mismanagement is absolutely rampant.

if my state allowcated $20k towards my childs education and the school he was zoned for sucked, i'd rather take that money cash and send him to a local secular private school.

now bring on the voucher bashing.

generally, it's not the teachers, it's the administrators
and local education board cartel shifting money around
to benefit friends.

I live in a home with two teachers, one who's been with
LAUSD for something on the order of 30 years.

you'd be appaled by some of the stories of beauracracy,
mismanagement and outright pilfering that goes on at
the high levels of management.
