Since Teach for America has 350 million in the bank why is Duval County looking to give then 11 million more?

This is from the Washington Posts Answer Sheet: Teach for America (TFA) is a
well-established, national program with revenues totaling $270 million for
fiscal Year 2011 (its most recent annual report). With total  expenses of
$219 million, TFA’s net assets increased by over  $50 million and now
total over $350 million. 
Not only does the district pay a 2500 finders fee and then
pays the salaries of the TFA teachers but the district through the champions
of education is looking to spend 11 million more. Um why?
Wouldn’t that money be better spent trying to put lifelong educators
in our classrooms?

Of course it would but that hasn’t stopped the county
from wasting money.
