Growing up on St Croix and now living in Baltimore, I'm very surprised and upset to see all the money being sent back to D.C. when I know the students on St Croix could use it.
The mismanagement of funds is horrific. Those found responsible should be required to give their annual salary to help pay for some of the supplies and teachers' salaries.
Tisk tisk, I would have thought that things would have changed 16 years later.
