Have Schools Become Top-Heavy and Wasteful?
Top-heavy and wasteful schools, huh?
I have never seen a wasteful school in person, but I have seen plenty of folks that believe schools waste funds. Being an expert in other areas, I can't prove my belief that schools are fiscally responsible, but I am not willing to believe anyone who asserts they are.
I have seen schools trying to hold on to slide projectors even though the technology had long-since passed. Like 10 years past. Oh, here's another one. Wanna bet that most schools are still using VHS in some capacity?
I bet they are. But you're probably not at home.
So, this post is just a bit of a rant. I would love to see schools at the point where they could be the early adopters of new technology instead of lagging far behind using hand-me-downs. That's what they would do if they had the money. Here's my point...
I don't believe it when I hear that schools are wasteful. Not sure about the top-heavy part.
What do you believe?
