Giant school districts sometimes make poor choices. Such is the case in this report from MSNBC on how a school district – just four slots larger than the Clark County School District on the list of America’s most giant school districts – is paying over 700 teachers to not do any work. Paying them in full, with full benefits, summers off, the whole nine years.
Here’s the tale of how Clark County School District bureaucrats managed to blow a charitable contribution in seven figures. The money has since been donated the UNLV (one million) and Temple Beth Sholom (another million).
Fortunately, no school district bureaucrats lost their jobs over the fiasco.
The Clark County School District pays $300 per hour for advice. Details here.
