BoE approves budget

Well, that didn't take long at all. Eighteen hours after Superintendent Janey unveiled his Master Education Plan the Board of Education approved DCPS's FY2007 budget by a 5-2 vote. Board Members Jeff Smith (Wards 1 & 2) and William Lockridge (Wards 7 & 8) voted against the proposal, with Smith claiming that too many questions were left unanswered. Many of those voting for agreed, but felt any delay would be seen as incompetence by voters.
