Following The Money

Lisette Meija over at Mission Local takes a look at grants to under-achieving Mission neighborhood schools. In a comprehensive (exhaustion alert) overview, she takes apart the complicated structure of spending Federal grant money— after firing principals and staff to qualify for grants in the first place. Unsurprisingly, over 25% of the $7,677,209.00 spent went to consultants. Plus $2,753.00 to a 3-year Apple Care contract. We're not complaining here, maybe just chalking it up to job creation.
