Was Education Commissioner Draud Doing Us a Favor?

The news about the excessive cost of Education Commissioner Jon Draud’s car has been all over the blogs and in the news. Still, compared to the vehicle costs for what the school bus garage manager in one school district is reported to be driving – at taxpayer expense – maybe Draud was being relatively kind to us (Check out the second reader comment to this news article).

Or, maybe, the Draud experience is typical of a school system that considers it quite OK to make flagrant misuse of tax money. Thanks to the fiscal coding chaos in our MUNIS education financial system, which remains unfixed almost two years after the problems were identified in this report, who can tell?
