So the $20000 statuez...which my child has informed me there were 2 of them so thats about $40000...was that taxpayer money used to buy those? Cqause if so I find that ridiculous. That is a great school...but I think that is a little excessive. That money should have been used for something better. That school has a definite parking problem. I can never find a spot to park even when I have to check my child out...so how about alleviating the cluster that forms around drop off and pick up times. Just saying. Or maybe you could take $40000 and give bonuses to the hardworking folks that work to educate our children.

And while that was nice of the family....$40000 could do so much more than buy 2 statues. Excuse me for caring more about the education and safety of my child than statues for the football field. But you know what they say about opinions.....

Beer and cigarettes? Really. Is that what people like you would do with $40,000...po boy. And yes, it is their money, how they choose to spend it is up to them. But, it is my opinion that that money could have gone for something better. So put that in your pipe and smoke it...crackhead.

WELL, first you say you just asked and then when you are told the statues were donated you criticize the way a private citizen spends his money . Who are you to decide how someone spends there own money? Oh,I forgot we are a socialist nation now,sorry. Maybe he could have give all students who receive free lunches a new I phone 5 huh? Or bought them all a new pair of 400 dollar sneakers or something like that.

Ok crackhead...I think if you could actually read I said where the money could have gone. Are you really that stupid to think that the education system in this state is up to par? As for it being a private donation....kudos. It was totally that familys choice and that is fine and good.But obviously you are either from the ghetto or white trash cause you automatically go to spending $40000 on stupid things that only your type would. Beer and cigarettes...$400 jeans....I phones? Really? Teachers are underpaid and underappreciated. Georgia test scores are among some of the lowest in the nation. Schools are being closed around the state because of budget cuts. Those are the things I am talking about.

Oh,I see ,he should have written a check for 40 grand so the school system could give bonuses to some teachers with under achieving students. What do you care? It says on here you are from the wonderful city of Los Angeles .
