Williams costly retreat comes at a bad time said school board president

Superintendent Williams  continues a costly tradition he started six years ago at  Beaver Hollow Conference and Leadership Center in Java, NY.

School Board President Louis Petrucci said, "it comes at a very poor time ...all the budget cuts we have to doesn't look good when the district is bringing all these people here to a resort..."
The..." rooms in Beaver Hollow's villas, are priced at $200 to $300 a night with a retreat  tag of over $100,000, as lay-off notices go out to teachers and teachers aides this week. And "partners" vendors who have been awarded contracts to conduct business with the district stay in villas and schmooze with Superintendent Williams.

"Let’s be honest: we need a lot more well-off, well-educated white folks with a personal stake in both charter schools and education reform in general if we’re going to take reform to the next level, both politically and operationally.Whitney Tilson, hedge fund manager and major funding angel for the school privatizing Democrats for Education Reform, thinks there’s not enough rich, educated white folks.( Preaprez) click photo to his blog.
