The good buds in city council followed along and voted to make a show for the schools with science kits, textbooks, science labs, and Smartboards. They just signed another 5.3 Million to redecorate the high school library with a stage and kitchenette. Those things have done little to make the schools do better. It's worse than ever. What matters is what they do with science labs and smartboards - or without - not that they are there.
