    Should school districts be allowed to spend $400k+?

    Well, 450k out of 2.2 billion is like fussing about buying a gumball when you have ten thousand dollars. Sure, it sounds like this district needs to get it's finances in order, but I find your concern about this specific program, which is relatively speaking quite small, and it's effects on the budget to be rather strange.

    Personally, I'm glad to see school districts offering Arabic. God knows they have plenty of oil over there, and Dubai's becoming a real trade hub. Not to mention how badly the army needs translators.
