The federal government continues to dole out money for schools, but is the money going to good use?
Fox News reports:
“Multiple California school districts are using state and federal COVID relief money to hand out bonuses for teachers and staff, with one district even suggesting the money be used for a trip to Hawaii.
Clovis Unified School District, located in Fresno County, reportedly discussed using federal and state relief funds to give employees a “one-time payment to employees … given the extraordinary effort required of every employee over the course of the pandemic.”
Some schools are reportedly considering bonuses as high as $6,000 per employee, rather than making accommodations for students in need.
Public schools are receiving so much money, that if they were to spend it on what they needed, it would take years to diminish.
This is a prime example, of how money is being sent places and labeled as “stimulus” but would be better suited elsewhere. There are plenty of citizens struggling as a result of this pandemic. $6,000 bonuses, and trips to Hawaii simply do not fit into the equation.
