FBN: Finally An OP/ED Not Directed/Approved By The FBISD Leadership

See: http://www.fortbendnow.com/2011/04/13/51343

"First, why did the Board reward Dr. Jenney with a new 5-year contract? It has become painfully clear that he is masterful at manipulation and that democracy is not evident on this board. Board meeting after board meeting I have watched him whisper to the board president. She listens attentively to the Superintendent, then begins to maneuver the board in such a way that whenever other board members present strong opposing points, her summation of all of their statements somehow comes out representing only one viewpoint, one that aligns with that of the superintendent’s! It is easy to see that, for the most part, the board has given its power, perhaps not intentionally, to the Superintendent and he is not going to give it back without a fight!" FortBendNow

FBISD Plays Blame Game (Points finger at state cuts)-

See: http://www.fortbendnow.com/2011/04/04/51196

FBW comment: This will be the 4th out of 5 years that the current district leadership has been unable to balance the budget and had maintained record bond debt at over 1.5 billion dollars. Don't be fooled by the finger pointing...
