Still Waiting

I wrote on this blog site on December 15th in my “Show Me the Money” piece as follows:

"My note sent to Student’s First –

Sent to Students First on 12-15-11

Before I donate I would like some information about how my money will be used.
Please forward to me information regarding the compensation packages for the
executives of the organization.
Thank you"

I received this response yesterday form "Michele Rhee". Here it is.

Needless to say, I called the number indicated at the bottom of the email and was connected with "$" another "education reform" (eliminating tenure) operation in Edison, NJ . I repeated my request for information pertaining to executive compensation. I got no verbal information but instead was told that Kaitlyn (the woman who answered the phone) would "try" to obtain an answer for me and that it would be emailed to me.
I get the feeling that this inquiry will go unanswered like the previous one. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think so. I'll let you know!


  1. Don' write that check just yet Walt. B4K has a million in startup money from New Jersey investment bankers. See


  2. I wonder why NJ Investment bankers would finance B4K? I'm sure it's because of their pubic spirited nature. It couldn't be because they see some profits looming in the privatization of public school system, could it?


What do you think?
