Starr Finds $15 MILLION, Spends It, Will Tell BOE About it Next Week! #forgettransparency #lovesurprises

Funniest thing.  Just  this morning the Montgomery County Chief Innovation Officer was telling the County Council how there wasn't any money for any more tablets for students with disabilities in a pilot program. Yet, Superintendent Joshua Starr has been cooking up this new program for the general education students for months.  Special education students? Not so much.
