    Of course they do- they don want o ooze the cash cow this deseg funds have been for so long. Just like public entitlements- folks get use to (addicted to?) the handout and just "don't know what to do without them.

    I pray the judge rejects this request. All three districts in the county have known this day was coming for several years. They chose to live in denial and now want taxpayers to "cover" for them.

    Feeding at the trough is a hard habit to break. And look at the product they turn out! Even those kids who do go to college, many of them have to take remedial classes to learn things they should have learned in high school. Cut them off--NOW! We have been paying for mediocrity (or worse) for too long already!
