BOE Rested And Ready To Go
|After their much deserved and much
earned mini vacation at tax payer's expense, hopefully the Loudon County
Board Of Education, principals and entourage will be rested and
ready to address the problems facing the Loudon County system. According
to board members, they need millions of dollars to solve their problems.
And why shouldn't they be entitled to more money? Haven't they been
using the money they have responsibly? After all just because children
in some of our schools don't have heat, books, or other essentials,
that's no reason the BOE shouldn't load up and head to Gatlinburg for a
three day two night retreat.
While there resting, shopping and dining there will be meetings going on. Actually, very important discussions will take place. For what ever their reasoning, they have chosen to be out of the county when they address a number of very important matters. See agenda below.
It is almost unimaginable that the BOE would elect at this time to to add the cost of a tax payer funded junket to their already long list of irresponsible decisions, but they did. I would imagine someone will be able to find out just how much tax money was thrown away for the trip. Can anybody explain why they needed to go out of county to discuss county matters?
