The Huntsville City Schools have enough money going their way if they can fire the former Supt and then keep her on the payroll for at least a year more for guidance during the transition to the new Supt. This new electronic textbook thing is nothing short of ridiculous. There is no telling how much money was spent on the, PCs, software, network infrastructure, etc. to power this bandwidth intensive application and the idea of placing wifi in school buses is nothing short of stupid and excessively wasteful. I don't know how the Board got sold on this three times passed over Col. for for a Supt., but I think that the entire board should be voted out for lack of confidence. This ad valorem tax is supposed to raise 14 or 15 million dollars for the system. From what is reported in the news, regarding capital expenditures for building after building, this amound has to be a drop in a mighty large bucket. They say to consider that cost as a Happy Meal per day for schools. Well, I'm not to happy with this bunch now, so I say nix that additional tax. I understand that some of our graduates have been showing up at College campuses without the basic skills of reading and writing. If they can't read how are they going to be able to use a computer?
Col. Klink needs to go back to la la land where he came from.
