I’m still skeptical that school districts will see one penny of the $830 million federal education dollars that the US Department of Education recently approved for
with the repeal of the Doggett Amendment. Texas
Why would Rick Perry alter his MO and do the right thing for
public education? Why, when he virtually robbed public education of $3 billion in 2009 in the budget shell game he played with that money. Texas
But according to this article in FortBendNow, the FBISD CFO seems confident that based on the district’s Weighted Average Daily Attendance number, the district should receive ten of that $830 million.
I am the other way, and tend to doubt that the district will see any of that. But if by some remote chance I should be proven to be wrong and the funds come rolling in, then I would like to suggest an answer to what the district CFO doesn’t know the answer to: what to do with that extra funding.
Rehire the RIFed.
Classroom Teachers being the priority.
