School in poorest district wasted money


I lived across from Midway City School in Westminster for l5 years.  It closed in ’93, but it’s useful to note how it was mismanaged.  It threw out desk/chair combinations, workbooks, a pull-down map, toys, bird houses, bulletin boards, games, dolls, records, teaching mat­erials, lumber, firewood, expensive door closers (now on my house), a file cabinet, and, on one occasion, hundreds of good textbooks.  Lots of yard waste was thrown out, though this could have been used for compost, which the school ground desperately needed.  The heaters in two classrooms went on during the middle of the night, weekends, and holidays.  The automatic sprinklers weren’t turned off during the wet seasons.
