Editor, The News:
I shocked to read in the Feb. 12 issue of The Wakulla News that students who don’t normally ride our school buses are being asked to ride during the count week so that the school district can claim funds for them. This is defrauding the government and our superintendent should not be setting this example for students. I realize school funding is being cut, but this approach makes me wonder where else our district is defrauding the government to get more than their fair share of state dollars.
As a citizen, I am asking our school board to investigate the legality and ethics of this matter, and any other like it. I am told that students have been “rewarded” for riding the bus with a soft drink. How healthy is that?
