Have you ever wondered how the Lower Merion School District spends your money. I'm sure you would expect them to do so "as if it were their own!" Guess again, unless you also spend $45,000 a year on sushi! Of course, we're sure there is a legitimate reason that justifies such an expenditure to educate our children. We just have no idea what it is. But, we're all ears!
The expenditures to Sushi Tokyo, Inc. during the past 12 months were as follows:
- Nov '15 - $2,724.85
- Dec '15 - $11,962.30
- Feb '16 - $4,632.85
- Apr '16 - $10,171.45
- May '16 - $6,154.15
- Jun '16 - $6,412.90
- Aug '16 - $5,860.06
And while we're sure that they will tell us that they charge for the privilege of eating sushi, we're hoping to see the revenue side of this equation so the public can know how much its costing us to serve the children sushi, presuming it is for the children. Also, you may wonder about the risks of a school district serving raw fish to children. Are the parents signing a release? Maybe this is why LMSD's legal bills are so high. We've linked to the 12 months of expenditures so that you can see all of this for yourself.
By the way, do you wonder about the District's judgement? Serving raw fish to children sounds about as wise a decision as giving the students laptops with remotely operated cameras. How much did that ultimately cost us?
