Stick 'Em Up

According to the Star Telegram today, about 24 percent of Carroll ISD's $73.3 million operating budget will be sent to the state to cover the district's Robin Hood payment.

Barry, I wish to commend you for establishing this great BLOG. The content is normally light and airy and often something we have been thinking BUT had no outlet. Contrary to an extremely nasty forum taking up valuable cyber space, your readers and followers are not mean spirited like the owner of that other board or the posters who hide behind idiotic assumed names. These AKAs delight in attacks, inuendos,etc. against anyone who wrinkles their forehead. Keep it as great and "be happy". Welove it and appreciate all your invested time.

There's the Chuck Norris guy again....don't get it.....

Robin Hood plans drive me insanely angry. Advanced learning and cultural programs are taken away from the Carroll children BECAUSE (for example) Grapevine has to fund having ALL SPANISH SPEAKING kindergartens (2 out of 6 in one elementary).

Yell at me if you want to Libs/Humanitarians, but I figure if you decide to move to America, then you learn the language, um teach your kids assimilative skills, and voila! American kids still have a "better life" in conjunction with the immigrants.

Robin Hood plans are just wrong....punishing those who succeed....socialistic.

Graford ISD (where I work) sends nearly half of their tiny budget to the state (Possum Kingdom lake property is high value), yet they are on every federal poor list in existence. Follow this money trail and tell me if it makes sense:

Federal Grants --> Graford ISD --> State of Texas

The system needs fixing as soon as the governor and legislators can spare the time between campaigning and taking trips to neighboring states.
