Wow, we might not have a football season. Crazy huh? But when’s there’s 9 BILLION DOLLARS on the line then, hey, people get greedy and all kinds of underhanded, detrimental events that might harm the greater good can occur.
After all, we are talking about 9 BILLION DOLLARS.
Which is, might I point out, less than the yearly budget for LAUSD. That’s right, one city’s school district spends more on education than the entire NFL is willing to cancel a season for.
And you wonder why so much political attention is being focused on schools these days? They see the money. (Cha-ching!) It’s greed hiding behind a “we ought to help the little kiddies” propaganda.
The paydays some of these mega-education corporations take down are behemoth. Real Wall Street numbers. Oil, banking, medical, schools… which industry has the softest underbelly to fleece right now?
Teachers are in the crosshairs, of that there is no doubt. However, might it be because “dars gold in dem dar hills?”
