No-hope department

It is reported in the World's Worst Newspaper that El Paso ISD issued an announcement that the district is paying private tutors to prep students for the TAKS test, this despite high teacher salaries in area school districts. An editorial reads, in part
By having to hire public tutors, at taxpayer expense, it seems school leaders are admitting they're not doing a good job educating our children during school hours.

Read it all here. Some of the districts in the El Paso area have starting salaries of more than $40k, and that in a poor border area. The problem is not a want of money. The education cartel, much like the medical cartel, would devour every penny of money in the nation if they could get their hands on it, the whole time piously chanting, "It's all about the children."
