Gandhi to Rhee: "Surplus does not exist"

District Chief Financial Officer Natwar M. Gandhi has just released a letter he sent to Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee saying that the $34 million surplus she cited Tuesday as a basis for helping to finance teacher salaries under the proposed new labor contract "does not exist."
Gandhi's finding could well throw the status of the tentative agreement with the Washington teachers' Union into serious doubt, More to come.

Gandhi and his underlings sure are undercutting Rhee...over and over again. Let's watch, though, as the histrionics from teacher's union 'activists' undermine the whole contract.

Teachers in DC long ago ceased being constructive change agents.

Was Rhee intending to use the supposed surplus to fund her program of granting teachers more income if they gave up give up tenure and union protection?

I have a feeling this contract is DEAD.
