You do understand this was satire. and meant sarcastically

To 3:48PM ~~ Really? You mean we can't actually disassemble the kids to ship them to China?? Damn! I thought I'd finally uncovered a real solution ... :(

no doubt some of our governors especially Scott Walker in Wisconsin would sell them in a New York minute

Scott Walker has been in office 2 months and will fix the union problem that is going to take Cuomo 5 years to fix if at all.

Our state is a union controlled mess. While other states are DOING we just TALK.

Union problem? Unions are the only significant political force left in this country that consistently advocate on behalf of the middle class. Everything else is bought and paid for by corporate money. So by all means, deal with the "union problem" and then watch the top 1% completely control this country. Goodbye democracy, hello oligarchy. Enjoy!

We here at Greece Kid shipping, a Hairburger company, are ready and willing to ship your love trophy anyplace in the world for a small prepaid fee.

We are experienced, bonded, insured, and a bunch of other stuff you want to hear when you come in.
We disassembled a Police Department, we disassembled a Town Hall, and we can disassemble your rugrat.

Be honest, you're tired of the damn kid anyways. The Army won't take him, the Navy won't let him in the recruiting office, and thanks to GCSD UNION teachers the best that kid will do is Welfare. Save your family the embarrassment, ship the kid this week.

Call any time, we have operators standing by.

To 11:51PM ~~ Hysterical! But sadly near reality too.

The GCSD whistleblower line and the Town of Greece ethics office have already been outsourced to Kazakhstan.

rumor haz it the board is going to put off the study session on schools of choice until late May. apparently they are trying to delay any changes. going to be a discussion at tuesday nights board meeting.

To 11:48AM ~~ I suspect that is very likely, too. I never expected they would actually tackle the suggestions O'Rourke made on the timeline he recommended anyway. At this point in time, they've got a monstrous budget problem (O'Rourke promised it would be ready March 1 I think), they've got to find a new supt. and seal a deal for $250K for his salary before Cuomo tells them they can't ... and word is that O'Rourke is leaving mid month for surgery and won't return. They'll plug in Nadolinski again. Other than that, things are running quite smoothly ... ;)

The deal has already been set in stone. The cuts will be deep and as close to the classroom as possible! Schools of choice will remain as will all the bussing. We will still have one of the most top-heavy scool districts with numerous assistant supers, district coordinators,etc etc. My question is: With all the cuts in teachers (rumor has it that at least 1 in every high school dept.)how will it be necessary to maintain all those overblown salaries for thoseat the top? Who are they overseeing exactly? The librarians? No-they are going to be cut. Those teaching high school electives? NO-cut also!How exactly is GCSD going to prepare these kids for college? They aren't! The seniors will be expected to take a minimum of courses and get out asap. There is no longer a minimum number of credits that has to be taken and now there won't be anything left to take. Bare bones! But let's keep district office in tact!!!

To 3:03PM ~~ I've heard nothing yet, but assuming that what you heard is correct, I'm not surprised at all. In fact it makes perfect sense from the BOE's perspective. It's the "Superintendent's budget" ... his proposal. They are just a bunch of flunkie volunteers who can adopt it and blame him. He won't be here to have to handle any of it since he's having surgery and not returning. That allows the BOE to hire a new Supt. of their choosing without having to close schools, change schools-of-choice, reduce bussing or handle any of the other hard decisions they should be making. Who is ready for a 15% tax hike they blame on Cuomo?
