This junket is going to cost taxpayers plenty.
This April 4-7 the National School Board Association is having a convention in San Diego. I understand that the convention center overlooks the Pacific. This junket will cost taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars per school corporation. At MSD Washington Township, its board president, three other board members, the Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent, and some spouses (they only cost $10 extra in a room).
Some of the hotel rooms overlook the Pacific. Most go for $300 a night and registration is $850 per person. This doesn't include food, transportation, a car or two, etc. Not to worry, the taxpayers will pick it up. Some of the school administration folks are going a couple of days early to get over jet lag and look around. Maybe take a side trip.
