Knapp: People have a right to know where our money is going

In an article in today's Washington Post, County Councilmember Mike Knapp is quoted as saying,
"How could a payout package of public dollars not be public record?" he said. "People have a right to know where our money is going."
Well said, Councilmember Knapp! Now when will that statement apply to the Montgomery County Public School system, the entity that spends 50% of the county budget?

When will the public know how the missing 700 Promethean Boards were procured, how much they cost and if they were financed or bought outright?

When will the public know what has happened to the money in Independent Activity Funds that has not been accounted for, or has been spent on non student purchases?

When will the public know how many IP Cameras MCPS has purchased and for how much?

When will the public see the E-Rate rebate funds brought to the County Council for appropriation?
