anniej, isn't that the truth!

Where can you find such a group, ready to pretend to be upstanding citizens while grubbing for everything they can get...lecturing the public on "respect" while they scam and wheedle...asking, asking, asking for more--and then not paying the companies they have hired. Swanning about in massively self-indulgent ways, while they slash budgets, give teachers pink slips, destroy programs and 'build relationships' with FOR PROFIT institutions, setting up the students of Sweetwater for educational loans which could burden them for decades. What a fine bunch of ego-driven creeps.

While it should be WHAT YOU KNOW, in the case of the Sweetwater School District it appears to be 'who you know' and how much money they are willing to spend on you - whether it be supporting your school board campaign or your interest in fine wine or perhaps attendance at sporting events i.e. Lakers, Padres, Chargers.

Folks, the Sweetwater District does indeed need to be taken over by the State. The Grand Jury testimonies are indicative of a board and both past and present Superintendents who are out of control.
