    "Holding accountable"

    Extracting 17 Millions direly needed education funds from the public education system has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with holding anyone accountable.

    It's a fiction lawyer's associations and their allies have been feeding the public for a long time.

    If you want accountability, get rules and oversight, and administrative discipline. If you really think some school administrator has broken a rule, discipline him according to well established rules, reprimand, fine, fire, whatever the rules say. Have a system of rule enforcement in place.

    It is totally pointless to weaken a public institution and keep it from doing its job instead.  In the case of education it is even morally wrong. Depriving children of their education, or the quality thereof, just in order to stick it to "The System" is childish, immature, and petty.  

    It hurts taxpayers and those served by those tax dollars, none of which should be hurt.

    But it serves to make some individuals very rich.

    •  The words (0+ / 0-)

      I use have meaning. I know what I would do if I lived in a school district that tried to blame a little girl for the disgusting behavior of the employees who raped her. I believe our disagreement is due to an irreconcilable difference in our basic values. I see no purpose in further conversation.

    •  Agreed. The whole point would be for our (0+ / 0-)

      institutions to make the change.  Having sex with kids is culturally unacceptable.  It is an adaptation of culture to hold it as taboo.
      This has been going on forever.  Now with the empowerment of women in this nation, we can finally do something about it.  We can change.  Sex with kids is unambiguously intolerable.
