ZUCKERBERG'S $100M donation to NEWARK schools ends in FAILURE
In 2010, Mark Zuckerberg donated $100 million to Newark, New Jersey's failing public-school system with the intention of turning around the schools in five years. The goals Zuckerberg set out to achieve to enact a number of reforms that would make Newark a model city for education reform are widely seen as a failure, journalist Dale Russakoff told Business Insider.

So where exactly did that $100 million go if the turnaround was a failure? The $100 million from Zuckerberg actually became $200 million under the agreement other sources would match his contribution. Here's where that money went:

Labor and contract costs: $89.2 million
Charter schools: $57.6 million
Consultants: $21 million
Various local initiatives: $24.6 million

One of the biggest failures in Zuckerberg's plan to reform Newark schools was the renegotiated teachers' contracts.

The expansion of charters in Newark sent the city into upheaval due to the implementation of the plan.

Finally, $20 million of Zuckerberg's donation went to consultants who took care of management of the projects. Consultants were making $1,000 a day while the local teachers and administrators did not see any of the additional funds in merit pay that they were promised.

The problem with all such programs is that they are run by group-think libtards who always expect that their flawed ideology will work if properly funded. However, such projects cannot and will not ever work because liberalism builds nothing, it only destroys.

So a group of people were given a fuckload of money and they squandered it on bullshit?

flag waver


All you have to do is reward high performers and punish and fire low performers to get any job done right. Unfortunately that mentality doesn't sit well with socialist lazy asshole idiots, who are often found in charge due to their honed bullshitting skills.

clappa

Proves to me more and more that the lower IQ "citizens" of this country belong a one-way ticket back to their original countries of origin where they can practice becoming civilized before coming to first world nations.
