One thing for sure, the public officials must feel it would be worse to release the information to the public than it would be to keep it covered up which begs to reason; the situation is worse then we realize ergo the public wouldn’t be disenfranchised.

The taxpayers should know where there money goes. When there is misuse of taxpayer money there has got to be answers. They should not be allowed to cover it up or outlast the interest in these problems. Open the door for the information or open it to get out of a position that you should not be allowed to retain. Lets make HONESTY the trait that we pass down to our grandkids along with the bills for all of our wasteful spending!

School officials have already stated that there was no danger to the students and that there was nothing criminal. It would seem that the taxpayers involved could be told what is going on. It would seem that there must have been some sort of attitude or other problem related to the merger. That is my guess. Perhaps some perception of poor judgment involved? So why can't the public be told what the board takes issue with. This certainly could be done without concerns about libel.

I bet the taxpayers will be the ones that pay with no explaination.

Somebody let the cat out of the bag about the elementary school principal at FFCSD. It cost the District about 150K. Is it that hard to understand why everyone is tight lipped? School employees have their own set of rules that are not concerned with the public's right to know.
