High schools cut programs and faculty support

Original post made on Jun 24, 2010

Local high schools will have to absorb $2.8 million in budget cuts in the coming year. Students in the Mountain View Los Altos Union High School District won't have as much help preparing for exit exams, and may find fewer opportunities for sports with the 2010-11 budget.

Please slash salaries and pension benefits of school distict officials first. The officials are way overpaid and all their car leasing expenses,travel expenditures should be zero. The officials are basically eating everyone's lunch and bankrupting the cities and towns. It is time for people to throw these bums out and raise their voices aginst mismanagement by the city council and the corrupt school officials and board memebers.

I agree - the district administrators, principals, superintendents need to consider costs in their own salaries and the offices need to use the money like it's their own instead of constantly asking for more and more money to cover costs, air conditioning, printing, copying, etc. I have made the resolution not to give to LAEF because a blank check is essentially given to the school to make up the difference without sacrifices made from the perspective of the high paying administrators. It's corruption at the most local level. I also minimize my contribution because what they say they will do with the money doesn't necessarily happen so after a while, it's like a mooch coming back for more year after year.
