First the superintendent increases taxation 2% and year, hiding the funds in six different reserve accounts (2009).
Next superintendents report that the school faces a “fiscal cliff”, a “crisis” and recommends closing the school to the school board to “save money”. After some studies and delays, the unionized board willingly capitulates to shut the best school to save Teachers Union Jobs, sacrificing 12 administrators (2013).
Public and student outcry against the consolidation mounts, the (2013) bond to close the school fails, Delphi technique groups fail, alcoholic invitations to the kids by the administration under an assumed names fails, heckling & defamation fail. The school introduces armed police over the cries of “appalled” mothers and outraged taxpayers to intimidate the kids and parents.
The board caves in shame and fear that they’ll be blamed for this ignominious financial scheme and rescinds consolidation for the first time in the nation. But with $5,000,000 in overtaxation legally stashed in reserve accounts, all they require is a bond.
This scenario is playing out across the state, behind closed doors, with legal cover of legitimacy by the education industry: the banks, Insurance companies, Wall Street and Teachers Union oligarchs that own and manage public education like a private company, which it is.
VOTE EVERY SCHOOL CYCLE. THESE GANGSTER CAPITALISTS DEPEND ON YOUR IGNORANCE AND FAILURE TO VOTE
The public is kept ignorant by the media and school.
Voters should calendar their school vote. Vote against the budget, bonds and vote for non-union endorsed school board candidates.
