School teacher sounds like Wendy or her daughter.
Amanda took flight when the heat came down, and now they need a stand by scape goat. If they get Amanda back Foster can say... UH we didn't know how the funds were suppose to be spent Amanda never told us. She just gave us the money, so we spent it. At first they will be so needy for Amanda, and glad she is working, until someone starts poking around again.(It is either the law or another reporter). And who is really the most knowledgeable about where this money is suppose to be spent? I would think it would be the grant writer. And who is responsible if the board is not informed? It's not the boards fault, it's never the boards fault. Dog gone it if NOTHING is the boards fault, ever. So Amanda is getting $135 + to come back to a job and take the fall if problems start up again, that is why they want her back. They need a fall guy. Or a fall chick. So ya they are glad to see her, very glad.
