So where did all the money go?

According to the high school they are located in a suburban community 15 miles northeast of San Diego. It is a primarily middle to
upper-middle income residential community
...

According to the (D-102) It was moved by Mrs. Vanderveen, seconded by Mr. Gutschow, that Resolution No. 17-2008, determining that Poway Unified School District has sufficient instructional materials for 2007-2008, be adopted. Motion carried unanimously, 5-0

The district is still trying to suck more funds from the residents though...

So what happened to the money they already had on hand?

I've been thinking about similar stuff for a while. If you started your own school, you could have teachers feature sponsor patches like NASCAR drivers do... exams sponsored by McDonald's... blackboard sponsored by Florida Power & Light... the possibilities are endless. It might also help level the unfair playing field between public and private education.

Education as is is indoctrination. Why not indoctrinate brand preference? Maybe a future chance for chevy. Put the message into the heads of all impressionable children the exact message that the big boys of the market want them to hear.

This is government run ad business, and like all government run business, it will never generate much more than the bureaucratic costs it generates. Government lives on taxes, and the more that government runs on a single tax focus, the smaller the government bureaucracy, and the smaller the real cost of government.

Having seen a school administrator at a school for mentally challenged raise per pupil costs to $100k Cdn per student 10 x the average per pupil costs in 2007 (by comparison, room & board & tuition at Harvard was only 53k per annum), I have gained new respect for the profiligacy of government bureaucrats. There aren't many businesses where the staff outnumber the customers.

Uh-oh, I think DeVry is going to spam every test in America.

Perhaps said teacher could use a dot-matrix printer to produce his tests. The quality would be fairly poor, and it would be very time consuming, but it would be cheap.
