45% of MCPS Cell Tower Revenue Goes to Office that Manages Cell towers. 0% Goes to Teacher Salaries and Classrooms .@mcpssuper .@headmaster88

MCPS is doing a lot of whining today about how they need the revenue from a cell tower on the Wootton High School football field.  In fact, just last week the Montgomery County Council fully funded the Board of Education's Fiscal Year 2015 budget request.  

Here's what really happens to the revenue from cell towers on MCPS playgrounds and fields.  45% of that revenue goes to the MCPS Real Estate office that oversees cell towers.  The rest of the revenue is split up between school principals and deposited in their local school slush fund accounts.  None of the cell tower revenue goes to pay teacher salaries or to build classrooms.  

REM = Real Estate Management office of MCPS
