$18M for iPads is a little overboard says FBISD teacher

Dear Editor,

I am a FBISD teacher and just had to express my views about the newest $18M program for iPads. What was the board thinking of when they decided on this? Why are teachers never asked their opinion? Because they know we would laugh at them and shoot down all their “wonderful” ideas.

I am sure Jenney is getting some kind of a kickback on iPads if anyone looked hard enough into it. Jenney is only for himself and how much money he can make. If he doesn’t make any money on it then it won’t happen.

How ridiculous to spend $18M on iPads for second through eighth graders when the economy is the way it is. But that’s OK just lay off some more teachers and then give Jenney another raise and he will be happy. Then the board will extend his contract to 2020 because he is doing such a wonderful job.

Well if he is still here in 2020 you can bet Fort Bend ISD won’t be. He is ruining this district and amazingly no one sees it but the teachers. The public needs to wake up and truly start investigating this man and his reasons for doing things.

They need to ask why is it when someone runs to be on the board, they are 100% for the teacher. But once they are elected they forget and go to the “dark” side.

What kind of power does this man hold over them? He needs to be run out like he was in Virginia Beach.
