Everyone seems to have questions about whether or not the $100,000,000 grant from Billy and Mel is a good thing.

I'd like to know where the district is getting their $100,000,000 match from.

That's $200,000,000 total!

That's $14,285,714.29 per year for the 7 year period.

Hey Jean Clements: Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that the "ballpark" amount it costs to give us all a 1% raise?

Parents with kids in 4th grade will see the money run out as they enter their senior year.

Was any teacher interviewed and not published? If you were interviewed, how were you chosen, how were you notified?

Grapevine says we start FAIR testing the first week of December.

Not sure about everyone else but I lost 8 days in September to FAIR testing. I figure that this will measure my influence of 12 weeks - at best. About the only accurate measurement for that time span would be hair growth and schedule changes!

Its not even enough time to add the necessary computer internet bandwidth.

Am I the only one that thinks this bus is careening down the mountain barely under control?

-Bill Gates should promote
"learning" the way Microsoft

Let's see what he can do to
counter what the kids are
being bombarded with.
