So this is the crap that Maxwell wants to spend money on

So apparently, the attitude in new Anne Arundel County schools is to make benefit glorious leader:

In the new Nantucket Elementary School, between the cafeteria and media center, is the “Wall of Inspiration.”

It features posters of famous quotes and people – writers, philosophers, civic leaders. One has a quote from Mother Teresa: “We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.”

Another has a quote from Walt Disney: “If you can dream it, you can do it.”

And right in the middle, across from Ralph Waldo Emerson and Rose Kennedy, next to the great men and women of our time, is county schools Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell.

“Children and people are the heart of everything we do. And every move we make for better or worse impacts our children,” the poster reads, below a photo of Dr. Maxwell helping a student with her schoolwork.

It’s bad enough that the School System would approve such a frivolous expense in the first place. But Maxwell’s inclusion on such a wall, and the fact that taxpayer dollars were spent to fund it, is appalling.

I’m sure, however, that Tricia Johnson and Teresa Milio Birge will think that this is a perfectly acceptable use of taxpayer dollars. Too bad they don’t face real competition at the ballot box this fall….
