Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

On eve of Tuesday's budget meeting at 6 pm, Broward School Board is still hiding crucial facts from students, parents & taxpayers


According to Local10's Bob Norman, with school scheduled to start up again on August 22nd, with at least 10 Broward County schools having been hit within the past month by thieves seeking to remove copper wiring that protects those schools from lightning strikes, and even while the robberies make the schools vulnerable to lightning damage, the Broward County School Board is once again acting true to form.
In this case, trying to keep the name of schools that now lack this protection from students, parents and taxpayers alike.
On Monday, Norman and his cameraman were chased off school property by Broward School officials while speaking to a contractor sent to fix the problem at one school.

It's true: Though the beleaguered Broward School Board will be hosting an FY 2011-12 budget hearing on Tuesday night, only one South Florida media outlet has had a story about their budget problems in the past few days.
Just saying...
