Re: Brentwood School Budget
The fact that this town's budget is never passed is a shame. I believe that the people that do show up are the folks who have been here way before the minorities, have no children and basically belong in an old folks home. It's no wonder that the children are in gangs and up to no good because the programs that they are interested in have been cut out of the budget. Please don't complain or look in horror when the crime rate goes bad and it gets worse here.

Well, you could always donate YOUR money for these programs. When can they expect your check?

The bloated budgets proposed by these school districts have NOTHING to do with "the kids" and everything to do with inflated salaries for teachers, guidance counsellors and administrators. Look at the line items on the budget proposals next time before whining aboutthe "kids" getting "hurt". The after school programs and sports team have nominal increases every year. The salaries, pensions, benefits and administrative "costs" are always the most inflated. It's about time we tell these folks who work 10 months a year that the gravy train is over, get a summer job if you want more money.
