"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson 1820

"There is a growing technology of testing that permits us now to do in nanoseconds things that we shouldn't be doing at all." - Dr. Gerald Bracey author of Rotten Apples in Education

The Kirkwood School District buys into the National Practice of Spending Money it Doesn't Have

American Thinker writes about the foolish spending of taxpayer money:


The writer cites example of his district urging parents to apply for free lunches for their child, even if the family doesn't qualify. He then highlights the waste of taxpayer money for a community college instructor retreat complete with food and dancing. The retreat finished with a talk by the chancellor bemoaning the sad state of the budget.

This reminds me of the bond proposals put forth by the Kirkwood School District. It wants to build an aquatic center and expand schools to accommodate all day kindergarten classes. This is in a land locked district with a stagnant student population. Here's a previous blog about the wasteful KSD Board:


It's time to stop this wasteful spending. Watch this blog for information on how KSD residents can launch a strong offensive against these proposals. If you are in a different district, watch your school boards. Watch the spending. It's YOUR money and YOUR kids and YOU have a voice.
