"They Went to Miami and left me here" my bags were packed and I was ready to go
"$61,275.45 and all we got was this plywood award?"
"These conferences are grueling, pass the sunblock"
And like I said, in the numbers that they are willing to share, it looks like travel, hotels and registration fees alone were in excess of $60,000. Yes $60,000 dollars for one trip for one award, actually $61,275.45 to be exact How many times a year are staff traveling and what is the additional costs they didn't reveal for staff time, food and who knows what else.
To those teachers that are about to lose your jobs due to budget lay offs, you have my sympathies. I only hope you can find some consolation that your fellow teachers and administrators really enjoyed their junket to Miami, it was a blast. #hatersgonnahate
