Now the ever-proactive NJ Government is sending in a squad of inspectors to look over the same stuff in the Elizabeth schools that the state auditors looked at recently.

The cynic in me thinks that this is a ploy to get it off the radar for a while, people will forget about the “probe” and it goes back to business as usual. The slightly less cynical cynic in me thinks that Elizabeth is a sacrificial lamb here (and probably not the worst offender) that will be held out for archery practice while the other districts lay low.

The optimist in me thinks that maybe this is legit. But that line of thinking will come around to reality soon enough.
