From the AJC. Great letter that brings up a lot of good questions.
Get to the bottom of school system accusations
As a longtime critic of the largest school system in the state, I must admit even I've been somewhat taken back by the seriousness of the allegations being leveled at the school system, on gcps.blogspot.com, by what appears to be a group that includes the previous chief financial officer of the school system, Jeff Weiler. ("D.A. looks at blog accusations; Web journal says schools leaders guilty of malfeasance," AJC Gwinnett News, Dec. 3)
I'm even more amazed at what seemingly appears a lack of interest in these accusations by the Gwinnett County District Attorney's office, the lack of reporting by the media and the silence by the school system.
... I believe that taxpayers in Gwinnett County have been more than generous in providing financial support to our public school system, as can be witnessed by our recent approval of extending our special purpose local option sales tax for yet another time.
We deserve to know the truth regarding how our school system has managed the funds with which we have entrusted them. After all, we're paying for it at the tune of well over $1 billion a year. So let's get to the bottom of this mess, and let the chips fall where they may.
