“I do not believe that the effort required of my staff to gather and organize the information regarding job descriptions and cost of all board office renovations … is an effective use of their time.” — School Superintendent Rudy Crew, responding to a request for information from the School Board. From Michael Lewis’ column on how the School Board operates, which is a must-read. (Among info Crew is not interested in providing: where the overtime is going.)

    Public schools, magnets in particular, are like a three legged stool, the students, the faculty and the school buses. cut transportation and the school/stool will topple.

    The school board is a joke. They’re stuffing their pockets and don’t give a rats furry ass about the schools or the students. I know of many instances where kids are given a pass into another grade, without ever learning the basic curricula for the previous grade. The schools “fast track” kids through. What results is a mass amount of people graduating High School though they are barely literate.

    The problems with our schools most definitely are exasperated by a horrible and corrupt school board… but they begin further North… In Tallahassee.
