excessive arrogance and greed

I went to the final PTA meeting of the year at PS15 yesterday morning, and learned that instead of the 4 to 5 rooms that the PAVE Academy was originally supposed to get, they'd been given 8 and a half rooms, INCLUDING THE SCIENCE ROOM!

Meanwhile, PTA members have seen Spencer Robertson speaking in a local park to area parents about the PAVE Academy, and bragging about how much additional money he's been able to drum up for his school - while PS15 has had its budget cut by $1 million dollars and has to play host to a parasitic charter school that benefits by taking additional rooms away from our students and not having to pay a cent in rent. He's also been bragging about giving all of his students laptop computers. All this while my son (and your kid, too) has to go without a science room!

This is outrageous and inexcusable.

This is going to be an interesting summer.
