As PWCS puts out their list of important programs that might face cuts in order to balance Dr. Walt’s ridiculously $17 million unbalanced budget, some folks out there probably aren’t going to overlook a few of the utterly ridiculous “strategic programs” that we’re in danger of having to cut. Like these two:
|40||Strategic Programs||Financial Services||Budget Award Application||Government Finance Officers Association award application||National recognition for excellence in the preparation and issuance of the School Board budget||-||$690|
|41||Strategic Programs||Financial Services||Budget Award Application||Association of School Business Officials award application||National recognition for excellence in the preparation and issuance of the School Board budget||-||$1,160|
For twenty-seven years we have been forking over taxpayer money in the county to buy fake awards from these criminal enterprises, and now these expenditures are “strategic programs” that we *gasp* might have to go without? Oh, the horror!
Why in the hell weren’t these cut from the proposed budget before PWCS invited us to bitterly subject them to unending ridicule for trying to tell us that buying fake awards from sham organizations was a “strategic program” that was essential to providing a “world class education?” If they’re hoping for us to take them seriously ever again, it’s not going to happen with stupid crap like this on lists of essential “strategic programs.”
Any why aren’t the millions of dollars we make in payments to Pearson Education, The International Baccalaureate Organization and other shady outfits not included on this list?
Here’s a more serious point of budget discussion: how much would we save if we fired each and every fool at the Taj Mahal (Kelley “Leadership” Building) and used the facility as classroom space instead of building Captain Nemo High School?
