Default Broke school system

Quote:
NEW ORLEANS -- Louisiana's school superintendent is threatening a forced takeover of the cash-strapped New Orleans school system unless it turns its budget -- including contracts and the power to hire and fire -- over to an outside manager.
If the Orleans Parish School Board and Superintendent Tony Amato don't agree, the state would ask courts to appoint a financial administrator, The Times-Picayune reported Friday.

"I spent five hours on Monday with Amato and board members ... and I begged them to take action immediately," state Superintendent Cecil Picard told the newspaper.

Otherwise, he said, he and state Legislature Auditor Steve Theriot "will have to do what I think is best to protect the bonds, the taxpayers of Orleans Parish and the future of the kids."

His 12-page proposal says the state could ask the courts for a takeover if the board refuses to hire Deloitte Consulting immediately to take over the books for the next 90 days.

He said it should then choose an outside manager to run the system's finances for two years. That company would report to a state oversight board appointed by Picard and including Mayor Ray Nagin and other New Orleans business leaders and politicians -- but neither Amato nor School Board members.

The School Board's role in finances, already limited substantially by a state law last year, would be limited to, "Contract with external vendor and provide necessary funding."

Academics of the 62,000-student system would be left entirely to Amato and the seven-member board, which has a special meeting Monday to consider the 90-day proposal and other emergency matters. The two-year proposal would be considered at its regular meeting April 25.

School Board President Torin Sanders -- one of five new members elected in January -- said he has not reviewed the proposal, but had serious reservations about ceding substantial authority to the state or its contractor.

"We were elected by voters to do a job. Cecil Picard did not elect us," he said. "I think we deserve the authority and opportunity to fix the problem and right the ship."

Neither other members nor Amato could be reached for comment Thursday, the newspaper reported. Picard said he has "100 percent support" from the superintendent.

State Rep. Karen Carter, D-New Orleans, who would be on the 10-member oversight panel, said she has spoken with board members and believes Picard could face serious resistance.

"As a public official, it's easy to just be against something, but they need to come up with an alternative because we now have a situation where teachers don't even know if they'll get paid," she said.

Sanders said he was concerned about the high cost -- at least $1.5 million -- for a 90-day contract with what he called uncertain results. He also asked why other local firms couldn't bid for it.

"We've been told in no uncertain terms by the legislative auditor and others that the only thing that will fix the problem is to have people on our payroll who can do the job," Sanders said.

The two-year management would probably cost at least $5 million, Picard said.

Whatever the cost or objections, Brenda Mitchell, president of the New Orleans teachers union and another member of the proposed state oversight committee, said she doesn't see a reasonable alternative.

"The district is in financial crisis. The state has offered help," Mitchell said. "It may be difficult for some people to swallow, but the circumstances in which we find ourselves has put us in this position, and I don't think we have a choice but to accept it."
This story is outdated: the only one who wanted to help anything last year (Amoto) has now resigned.
What do you think: has Orleans Parish once again managed to screw themselves and with them this state?

Nah. It was the story.

Well this is just a school system that's draining the state that drains the country.

This has the word "corruption" written all over it. When someone wants to force feed one thing and ONLY that thing, something is seriously wrong. The 1.5 million dollar price tag for just an evaluation perios pretty much gives it away.
