Education reporter, Kent Fischer's latest information about the missing $64 million in the Dallas school district just leaves me shaking my head more and more.
Why should the superintendent resign? After all, is it really his fault that his Wall Street connection COO that he hired messed up so badly?
Michael HInojosa has told the paper's editorial board he won't resign. It's gonna be one of those deals. Three of the nine trustees are now on the record saying the Supe should not lose his job over this. After all, (if you keep drinking the Cool-aid) it's not the Supe's fault, it was someone elses. Always is.
Meanwhile scores of people are making posts on the Dallas Morning News' blog, Front Burner, and The Dallas Observer's Blog Unfair Park that maybe it is the Supe's fault. But it's not the Supe's fault that people are saying that it's his fault because it's someone else's fault, not the Supe's fault, because he's never at fault; someone else is.
Or so the argument goes.
And then there's the issue of the 08-09 budget, which is based on the same formulas and information as the budget from last year with the missing $64 million.
What a mess. Just remember, this isn't Michael Hinojosa's fault. It's someone elses. Always is.
