Washington D.C. public schools spend $29,349 per student, but 83% are not proficient in reading

I’m curious to hear anyone’s ideas about what could be done to solve this problem.

My proposal: shut down the D.C. public school system, give vouchers to the parents equal to 49% of what the public schools are currently spending, and use the other 51% to cut taxes.

What ideas do others here have on how to fix this problem? Please offer your ideas in the comment section.

CNS News reports:

DC Schools: $29,349 Per Pupil, 83% Not Proficient in Reading

The public schools in Washington, D.C., spent $29,349 per pupil in the 2010-2011 school year, according to the latest data from National Center for Education Statistics, but in 2013 fully 83 percent of the eighth graders in these schools were not “proficient” in reading and 81 percent were not “proficient” in math.

These are the government schools in our nation’s capital city — where for decades politicians of both parties have obstreperously pushed for more federal involvement in education and more federal spending on education.

Obama gave taxpayers’ money to Obamacare contractor to hire employees to do nothing

It has just been reported that Obama gave taxpayers’ money to Serco, an Obamacare contractor, to hire employees to do nothing. The more employees that Serco hired to do nothing, the more taxpayer money it got from Obama. At the time of the report, Serco was still hiring new employees.

It took the government two years and 30 trials to fire a court stenographer who typed gibberish instead of actual transcripts

Here’s a great example of how difficult it is for incompetent government employees to get fired. For at least two years, and for at least 30 trials, this court stenographer did not do his job properly, but was still able to remain employed.

I can’t imagine someone in the private sector keeping their job for even one day after doing something like this.

Retrying these 30 court cases could easily run into millions of dollars.

Why doesn’t the government make audio recordings of these trials?

The New York Post reports:

Rogue alcoholic court reporter kept writing ‘I hate my job’

An alcoholic Manhattan court stenographer went rogue, channeling his inner “Shining” during a high-profile criminal trial and repeatedly typing, “I hate my job, I hate my job” instead of the trial dialogue…

The bizarre antics by Daniel Kochanski, who has since been fired, wreaked havoc on some 30 Manhattan court cases, sources said, and now officials are scrambling to repair the damage.

One high-level source said his “gibberish” typing may have jeopardized hard-won convictions…

Kochanski’s botched transcripts include the 2010 mortgage-fraud trial of Aaron Hand, who was also convicted of trying to hire a hit man to take out a witness against him.

A source familiar with the case said Kochanski’s transcripts of that trial were a total mess.

“It should have been questions and answers — instead it was gibberish,” the source said.

And in a scene right out of 1980’s “The Shining,” where Jack Nicholson’s off-the-rails writer repeatedly types “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” a source said of Kochanski: “He hit random keys or wrote, ‘I hate my job. I hate my job. I hate my job,’ over and over.”

Obama gave Oregon $304 million to build its defective Obamacare website that enrolled zero people

Obama gave Oregon $304 million to build its defective Obamacare website. As of February 28, 2014, exactly zero people had signed up at Oregon’s Obamacare website.

I am not at all, in any way, surprised by this.

Given all of the many, many, many other things that Obama has done, I actually expect things like this to happen.

What I don’t expect is for Obama to do anything about it. Sure, he may pay lip service, and pretend to get all angry and upset. But in the end, he won’t ask for the money back, he won’t fire anyone, and he won’t prosecute anyone for fraud.
