« But ... I too am a Francophile | Main | Obama plays it coy on Israel »

So, your point is what? Spend the money even if it's wasteful or inefficient? Let them eat cake? Or what?

What Sue Hildick and her corporate buddies at Chalkboard will NEVER recommend is fair taxation of corporations.

Actually my point is that all this quibbling over crumbs distracts people from the real problem here in Oregon --we have a revenue problem, not a spending problem.

I assume that some of the bus efficiencies would come in the form of bus drivers' jobs --hardly a way to stimulate the economy. Which is the real point of the post.

I had never heard of Sue Hildick or Chalkboard, but you tweaked my curiousity, so I went ahead and read the link you cited in your first paragraph.

The link cites a study commissioned by the Oregon Board of Education. The link does not go into details of how the study proposes to save $20 million in school busing, but the link also does not propose "not paying bus drivers or teachers."

The first sentence in Hildick's article, in fact, is "Because of the state's budget crisis, it's important for education advocates to encourage legislators to continue funding K-12 adequately."

That doesn't sound like someone who is advocating not spending what it takes to fund education, just someone who is, sensibly, trying to find ways to be efficient along the way.

It's Kulongoski who suggested that teachers work for free in order to keep the schools open the full year.

Hildick and the Chalkboard always ramble on about funding schools adequately, but they never do anything about it.
