Manhattan Beach Contracts with Contractors and Consultants

Manhattan Beach Unified is holding out on granting a pay raise to teachers, yet they have granted a pay raise to the superintendent and deputy superintendents.
The school district is contracting with less money and still high demands from the state and the community, yet the district has decided to contracted out retired administrators (who are without a doubt already receiving a generous pension from the state) to “consult” the current administrators on how to do their jobs, as if two people have to do the work of one person.
They have also hired a substitute teacher as an “Energy Consultant” to cut future costs by saving the environment.
The Beach Reporter shared these developments in the Manhattan Beach Round-up, a small article tucked near the back of the newspaper.

I cannot believe that these developments receive such limited space in the local press.

The Beach Cities School Districts are so determined to save “Green”(as in the environment), that they are willing to waste “Green” (as in money) to fund abortive projects that have nothing to do with educating our youth our using our tax dollars in the best ways possible.

Is embattled incumbent Congressman Henry Waxman, who loves the environment to our hurt and the economy’s peril, pulling strings behind the scenes in our district schools? It seems that school boards have “Solyndra” on the brain, yet they have ignored the “inconvenient truth” that public monies to save the trees help an elite few and harm students and voters.

When will Beach City voters get “Red” with rage over all this “Green” getting wasted?
