And where would the good Mr Williams go to make the same money, the same benefits, the same retirement? And also work under the same lack of performance standards, the same job security. As supers do here in the north, he can ruin his district, produce low educational and graduation standards, then have his name put up in lights in front of the campus. Then he can go to work for the architects who screw the school district at ever turn during construction projects. He might even be able to get in line for some kick backs for steering contracts.

The fiscal restraint is negligible at all levels. If this were a private agency, I assure you Buffalo schools would not have a billion-dollar budget.
