School officials live it up on taxpayers' dime

Here's an example of how public school funding is being utilized. Public school officials from Oakland County, in southeast Michigan, played golf, ate at fancy restaurants, stayed at 5-star resorts, bought expensive gifts, and partook in other questionable purchases while attending 'workshops' and 'conferences' at the taxpayers’ expense. In addition, one person went on a sight-seeing trip to Europe and labeled it an educational tour. Here are some info-graphics showing how taxpayer dollars were spent, the locations they visited, and a look at two expense reports. I tip my hat to the Detroit Free Press for uncovering this story.

Something to think about the next time the public school system begs for more funding.
