Educational Fraud - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Twentieth anniversary of VIPP, candidates are paraded in
front of us and are given two questions to answer on
renewable energy.

Then ordinary people file up to tell their stories of
hardship and challenge - as if we don't have the
same or worse situations.

Now people in the education sector spout their problems

Yet, school districts do have plenty of money for a
child's education, if they would start using it wisely
instead of buying products with outrageous costs,
ordering computers, etc., paying for them and then
letting them sit in the warehouse and never be used.

Then this supply of brand new computers, products, etc.
are sold in auctions of the state where their costs will
never be retrieved.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This goes on every year in the school districts, they have so much money for education that they feel they can squander it foolishly and no one will care. When supplies and products are sold at auction they are practically given away, very cheaply. A lot of it is brand new in boxes that have never been opened. (like computers!)
