What let me get this straight, Esquire says he cut $161M from the budget but STILL needs $14M more? What did he do with the money he saved by closing schools and eliminating positions that were not filled?
ASD is getting significant pushback in Nashville since according to Barbic's own statements, they picked a school already on the way up.
You also failed to mention that the state has already given the ASD at least $21M more in funding for the next school year to run the admin offices alone since all RTT money is GONE.
In addition, I bet you are comapring apples to oranges. Has anyone done a comparison of the rosters of the beginning of the school year to the end of the year? TCAP/EOC is coming up and the dance of the students begins. You wouldn't believe the amount of charter school kids that end up back in SCS the week before testing begins. In full disclosure, these kids don't end up on anyone's list that counts.
Now the most interesting question, what will SCS do with it?
You jaded view Truth is based on the fact that you don't get the regular opportunity to work with those who recognize destructive behavior and overcome it. How much interaction do you have with peer power? These same whites that you are vilifying are responsible for this organization. Every single kid coming out of the peer power program has been successful in college!
Sorry truth, but that is not the root cause. If I had a kid for every time I had sex, well let's just say I would have way more than three kids. And there are plenty of teenagers right now having sext hat will not result in conception. If this was all we had to do, why on earth would we cease prom and segregate all schools by sex. Easy fix and this would cut down on at least 50% of teenage sex.
She IS a piece of work.
First let's talk about stats. 100% of kids - never gonna happen.
Second let's talk about money. Izone grants are gone. Where is the extra $3M per school coming from?
How do you empower teachers with common core, evals, and TVASS. Most teachers in younger grades are scripted. That is NOT empowerment.
The MSDs are going to be jumping for joy because SCS is about to ask for a WHOLE lota money.
Try again. I probably know more about that school and the incident than you will ever know.
Kids from Orange Mound have been at WSHS for 15 years. This is why Melrose is at 60% capacity and WSHS is over 110%. Refining separated gangs.
