Slimey move by D300. "Well, we'd have a budget surplus if you're cool with 40 kids n a classroom and we freeze the teachers pay-Again. Butttt, as admin, we'll continue to give ourselves raises like we're frigg'n Rockefellers." Translation: ya don't have a frigg'n surplus! Nice try.

The class sizes are ridiculous. I have never seen so many kids squeezed into a classroom. The bus service needs some serious attention.
