Kokomo Schools are facing a budget issue. They are a million dollars over budget for next year. The state is ending the extra funding for their 8th grade vocational program fiasco.(You mean an 8th grader might not be right for a 12th grade automotive class? There are actual prerequisites?)
The state funding for night school students, to sit at home and not show up, can't last forever.
The teachers haven't had a raise in years. What does the board do? Continue to spend and send the Superintendent, Administrators, and Teachers across the world on their annual summer paid vacations to Costa Rica and Europe? Thank you tax-payers. Didn't the IRS scandle teach these people anything?

Why does the board continue to pay for this? Is there any actual oversight? How can this help our students read, write, and problem solve better?

Is there any type of facility plan? The superintendent seems to spend 2 million at the drop of a hat with no planning long term?

There was no response to this so I wanted to clarify that the international trips are all paid with grant money. It is true that experienced teachers have not had a raise for 7 years.

Public schools are the best reason I can think of for private schools and homeschooling.

I have a"special needs" son and during this last school year they had a teacher come to our home once a week to try and help him. This really nice teacher opened my eyes to why these children of terror get by with behaving like Neanderthals. She told me that teachers cannot report these kids because their funding is based on how many problem children they have. The more reports made the less funds they get, so the kids get by with just about anything! A piss poor way to determine funding if you ask me, not that anyone would ask me.
