    Polk school district to give iPods to some parents - Bay News 9

    :clap2:

    Just when I thought giving money to phantom districts was the worst, this takes the cake.

    This would be hilarious it it wasn't our money, but my God, can you get any more specific in handing out $350,000?

    Ipods can be an effective teaching tool if the teachers have been properly trained. But I'd be curious to know if the kids are allowed to take them home, in which case they will most likely be used for other purposes. My guess is the district just flushed that money away. No problem - the govt can just print more.

    Our money? Would that be the money they print at will from the magical printing press . . .. or would that be the money borrowed from China?

    This is fucking bullshit. Why isn't uncle taking that money back? Didn't they say they were going to saves billions by cutting waste/fraud in medicaid/medicare? What about this waste? What job is this saving or creating? Fuck them, fuck them, fuck them.

    True, but I was referring to the money the government takes from us through taxes.

    Did I read this right? Are they bribing the parents with iPods so they'll become more involved in their disabled children's education? WTH?
