So I need to vent. Every media outlet in the country is reporting this story and no one bothered to get their facts straight. This is not anything new with DCPS. They paid kids to go to summer school 2 summers ago, and not just 300 kids but hundreds more than that. I know because I taught those kids and saw the time sheets used to pay them. So why can't any of these "reputable" media sources get the facts straight. It's not like we are talking about something that happend 10, 20, 40, or 100 years ago. It scares me that no one did any research or fact checking. What the hell are we coming to? The news media used to be trust worth and respectable, now lazy journalists just report whatever, knowing that they can correct it later. But they can't, because news is distributed to millions of people throughout the world, most of whom I am sure do not do any follow up to see if what was originally reported was accurate, because they just assume that it was. I know this case is not that serious but it kind of is if no one even bothered to do the miniscule research necessary to get it right. WTF really!?
