This School Board has played fast and loose with bond monies for a while, including giving $20 million from the last bond measure to help build ex-Mayor Sanders' trophy Downtown Central Library on the pretext of its containing a school -- a charter school without a sponsor, at that. This action was followed by some-smoke-and-mirrors manipulations which "repaid" the $20 million to the bond pot from some other funding source.

Principals at secondary schools who do stuff like this with ASB monies get disciplined. But this Board of Education just skates. 90-foot light towers over athletic fields were never before considered bond-eligible expenses. Today, anything goes.
