And do you think that the districts clamoring for more funding are free of corruption, graft, and waste?
As I've noted before, this school board was told there was a $75 million gap. They closed it with no layoffs.
Some of it was cutting unnecessary expenses. Some of it involved sacrifices. Some of it involved taking bold steps in the face of vocal opposition (like saving $13 million by pulling out of the State School Employees health fund).
I am confident other districts could undertake similar measures and recognize spending.
We all talk about corruption in Jersey City. Let's not pretend other districts are free of it. East Newark's Micro-District just hired a superintendent under investigation, for goodness sake. "He's a good fit" said the board. Well ok then!
