Sometimes you hit a treasure trove and sometimes it's just junk, but a public documents request -- which my friends in the bricks and mortar media make all too infrequently -- is never a waste of time.

As the 4,500 of you who read the previous release of internal emails may remember, the $180,000 payoff of Carolyn Gardner was done without the standard "non disclosure agreement," after the schools did everything in their power to have it included.
Gardner's legal team insisted the settlement not be done under the cloaking device of a non disclosure agreement.
Of course maybe that's why the Public Schools are more inclined to give away the store with legal cases, since they assume the non disclosure agreement will protect them from prying eyes. All the more reason to challenge it.
At every opportunity.
