CUSDWatch Comment 

This gives me some value as to what my time is worth to expose the many abuses of students and taxpayers by CUSD.

$114 per hour to market CUSD?

Why doesn't CUSD just work with the community and focus on providing the best education possible to students rather than spend money to cover up continual bad acts that are abusive to taxpayers and students.
