Too Hot To Blog

It's too hot to blog, but here are some of the articles I'd blog about if could:

Cash-strapped school districts across Michigan are increasingly turning to private companies to manage food, custodial and bus services. The move can save money -- and in some cases allow districts to put more resources into their main mission of educating kids. But it can also bring controversy.

Thanks for posting these links. I was particularly interested in the USA Today article about Wisconsin schools selling naming rights. I personally think it's a big mistake for high schools to get into selling naming rights... a school that approves the "wrong" sponsor could get into a bunch of hot water.
