I used to substitute at Graham, and the last time I did (2007), the district had still failed to follow through with loose ends of the last major renovation of that school. And now they are eager to start all over. I just don't get it.

Round up the illegal immigrants, especially the ones with kids in the system, and put them to work on some of these projects to earn their keep here.
And check the immigration status of the kids too. I'll wager that a lot of the little buggers jammed into the apartment blocks along California and Latham Sts aren't legal.
