Gas Money for HISD???


Has anyone else heard about the current news going on with HISD? I just read this story and I still can't believe it. It's sad that there are workers who are in those conditions, but I don't believe $250 is actually going to help anyone with gas. At least not for the whole school year. Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Holy Cow! Maybe in order to receive the $250 they should offer a budgeting type of class as well. Yes, help but also educate how to spend and save. I would think people would jump on that idea. I would!

That is hilarious! How do they decide who gets the money?

I wanted to read the story at school but was denied access. I will read it at home because it sounds incredible!

The story is not only incredible, but very true. However, I don't think the board will approve of it though. But, I agree a mitch, that they should offer budgeting classes in conjuction with the award. Erin, I believe that only workers who earn less than 30,000 a year will be able to receive this.
