    from a reader email:

    How about we the people by the millions request our tax dollars go into direct deposit to each school building divided evenly among all Traditional Public School Buildings.Sorry,you're hands are out of the children's pie and it goes straight to your child's school building via direct deposit. Run your business operationally principles and go teach teachers. Send the test results at the end of the year and that's the last little kid I'm going to see hold a sign across this county that says, Save My School and SOS. Stop closing down our American Public School Buildings under PL 107-110 NCLB and now tough economic times and more operational budget is cut ? Rhee reform melted and Fenty fired and don't bring your unproven radical reform here in a fuss about money and it's disrupting the learning envionment in the universe. Antique firetruck,dress up like the Blues Brothers and blast "Think" and other songs with a permit to promote and inform general public. Traditional Public Education Tax dollars goes individually to school building direct deposit. That's the end of the funding crisis and the kids not getting the resources and support they need. Have a great day ! Get your hands off the children's pie $ ! Check accounting and transparancy on educational funding !
