Priorities.....fancy coffee or the kids....?
As someone who is currently going through contract negotiations with my school district...this type of nonsense makes me angry. Pretty funny, though....espresso machine....Washington....come on, thats damn humorous.
Boy, they could have gotten all those drinks out of a $120 Tassimo machine, plus tea, and hot cocoa to boot.
Now this is funny ... ironically similar to the $600 hammer for the military. Just think what we can do with govt run health care! $1000 per tablet aspirin anyone?
here we go with the hate on schools and school spending.
This is the same kind of decision a business would make.
It will pay for its self and then be a source of revenue and you guys hate the idea?
If they act in a business like manner you hate them?
It keeps the teachers there and it makes the school money.
If it takes an espresso machine to keep your teachers in place, there is something dreadfully wrong with your schools or your teachers.
Is there anyone you believe is not downtrodden and in desperate need of more tax dollars?
I meant there at the school instead of running out for a latte.
You see even they get breaks.
It is a sound businesslike decision dont you think?
Every business makes this kind of decision every day.
ITS A SMART ONE!
Why are you guys down on a school for trying to help pay for its self?
15k for an espresso machine, that's why. Gee, my school has a 4 pot Bunn coffeemaker, supplies regular, decafe, tea, hot chocolate.
Actually teachers don't get 'breaks', they get planning periods and usually a 40 minute lunch. I doubt many use either to run to Starbucks.
So you dont like the fact that they have made a sound businesslike decision which will pay for its self and be a source of revenue for the school for decades?
You're right, speaking to a brickwall in the morning is NOT a good start to my day. Like others, you refuse to address any points mentioned, so have fun.
