So far, no angry mobs of teachers have egged my house, yet. But this week’s column, “More schooling needed on district budget cuts“, focuses on some of the excuses and finances and hard decisions and run-on sentences of the Waukesha School District. Oh wait, I have the run-on sentences. They’re making the “drastic cuts.”
I have a question that I didn’t ask in my column. If the budget situation has been as dire as the school district has made them out to be, where did they find the money last year to hire the “first year” teachers they are laying off this year?
