Schools are where the money is
When MPS Superintendent William Andrekopoulos tells the school board that they will have to close schools and contain costs, will the school board listen?
Andrekopoulos took advantage of the “recentralization” discussion to address some broader concerns. He reminded the board of the 77% benefit rate. He then said, “You want all of these things, you are going to have to close schools.”
He also said, “You don’t like to have conversations about laying people off, and you don’t like conversations about outsourcing, but you only have so much money.”
