The Huntington Beach City School District wants to sell part of its property to a home developer that would "help pay for a new headquarters" ("School site up for discussion," July 19). The district is currently using the LeBard site as its headquarters.
What is wrong with this picture?
With school funding drastically being cut, teachers laid off and classroom sizes increasing, the district wants to spend money on a new, shiny headquarters for its bureaucrats instead of spending the money on educating the children.
They already have a headquarters. The district should use what it already has and is most likely completely paid for. If the district has a surplus of money, it should be spent on the district's primary mission — educating the children.
