"It's a classic case of how a management company mismanaged this school, was paid an extraordinarily large fee for dismal services, and the ultimate victims were those poor children," said Dot Clark, the Pinellas County school district's coordinator of partnership schools.

RT @excelined: Applauding Mississippi Gov @PhilBryantMS as he signed A-F Grading bill into law yesterday!



Put down the Twitter Machine, Jeb.


Your decades-old dreams of destroying public education by stealing the money from it are blowing up.
