And what will we be getting for our money...

At a time when so much of the country is struggling financially, the East Baton Rouge parish public school system will go into next year with a 130 million dollar boost- 50 some odd from a surplus and more than 80 million from the federal stimulus package.

On it's face, an investment of money into education seems like a good thing. But such a large amount of money above the normal- seems to me like a great big opportunity for waste. (Without a system to figure out how to best spend that money, etc.) Anyways, I guess I'll just try and pay attention next year and keep some tabs...
