Re: “The Mindfulness Room

cats,
Well lets see. In this same issue of style we have the latest reports of nepotism within city hall operations.
We also know that currently RPS is paying more for school construction per square foot than surrounding school systems due to the type of bidding process they are using.
We know that RPS has a history of not taking care of its facilities
We know that RPS has some of the highest truancy levels in the commonwealth.
We know that RPS has multiple levels of bureaucracy within its structure.
And we know that Kamras is all about equity, even if it means equity in failure.

Using know facts from recent media reports regarding RPS, and its overall history of being an unmitigated disaster, I applied that past history to this new endeavor from RPS, not to mention some additional sarcasm to make my point.

Re: “The Mindfulness Room

So RPS has done such a great job educating the children of Richmond they are now going to get into the yoga business?

Yoga program will require 4 levels of administration at Central Office, including several relatives of one another.
RPS will pay $53 for $25 yoga mats.
The yoga mats will be destroyed after 3 weeks of use.
Truancy level for yoga classes will be 63%
After 1 year of the program, Supt Kamras will decry inequities in meditation levels and demand a tax increase and yoga mat reassignments to fix diversity issues.

Re: “OPINION: Ongoing Problems

Stoney's solution to this problem is the only solution he knows for all other problems with government - raise taxes.

Re: “OPINION: Right Project, Right Time

Did Stoney really write this or did the PR guy for the developers write it for him?

Re: “OP-ED: Same Old Story

Cats, RPS doesnt have a money problem. They have a money management problem. Sooner you accept that fact the better off you will be.

Re: “OP-ED: Same Old Story

Perhaps the title should be "Same Old Story : No matter the leader or elected officials, Richmond's children still suffer under the same bureaucrats and administrators who run the day to day at RPS year after year". Perhaps instead of calling out corporate leaders and elected officials you need to call out the parents, many of whom are not involved in the raising of their kids, for failing to do the most simplest of things to prepare their kids for school. Perhaps instead of going on about the dollars supposedly needed by RPS you check out how well the current funding being spent by RPS is being managed.
