Well kiddies, here we are in Term 2, 2010.
I have received information from one of my insiders, that again the various Technology faculties in ACT Colleges are running out of money, because parents still are not paying the Voluntary Contributions.
So what should they do……
1. Have a massive Bake Sale, so they can get funds for technology supplies.
2. Write to parents, asking for them to actually pay these Voluntary Contributions.
3. Ask their various financial managers for more money.
4. Stop teaching the classes that are affected. No money means no practical classes. No practical classes means that those subjects that have ‘accreditation’ (from the Board of Senior Secondary Studies) are not operating as designed, so they can’t run anyway….
The bit that surprises me is that the schools still create their budgets on the basis that parents will pay the contributions. Well that still doesn’t work. The bit that blows me out of the water, is that the schools are not allowed to write to the parents, telling them of the consequences for not paying their contribution…..
Can anybody else think of something that can fix the situation?
(I fixed it by sending little JTK off to a private school, where I gladly pay to create their misery)
