Sorry to say it but they announced more spending, again.
The topic of the DoEd's post says it all:
U.S. Department of Education Awards More Than $48,000 to Help Vermont’s Windham Central Supervisory Union Recover From Teen SuicideYes it's a shame a kid committed suicide. But it happens.
Is the right step though to take $48,000 from tax payers and give it to the school district? For what? Nothing was destroyed.
But there are children's psyches to consider. We need to help them!
- Yeah. There's nothing more convenient than a strawman argument.
I have some free therapy I found on youtube. You're welcome.
