Betty Burney nearly wrecks the district, gets district job for her efforts

Betty Burney was part of a group that ran the district onto
the ground so I have to say I was enraged, flabbergasted and glad I wasn’t
eating when I read her I’m a Star Foundation was in line to get a contract with
the district to help provide services to overage children.
The foundation’s
staff would knock on parents’ doors, host-parenting sessions, or do whatever it
takes to get them to motivate their child, said Burney, a former School Board
member.
It’s unclear how many
foundation workers would staff the expansion, Burney said, because the
nonprofits are still fine-tuning their contract with the district.
Mind you this is a
job that is hard to quantify and it needs somebody of utmost integrity to do.
Does that sound like Betty Burney to you? No, it is unfreaking believable but I
am not the only one that thinks so. These were some comments from Times Union
readers.
From CrazyBob: Betty
Burney who allowed Duval county schools to lower levels of ranking during her
tenure and still has a fine unpaid from the state of Florida.
How come under
Burney, she was unwilling to do anything but now; she is part of this, what
money from this program is going to her???
How many of former
school board members are now riding on the budget of Duval county schools? WHY?
How many of former
failed leaders will vitti tap to make changes to the already failing system?
From
ComeonJacksonville:
I
thought this was supposed to be the Superintendent of Change. If that is so,
why is Betty Burney getting a contract with the school system? The same
politics that have always existed are still in Duval. We just exchanged an old
Pratt-Dannals for a new one.
