The Slow and Glorious Death of America's Worst School System - Reason.com: Per-pupil spending of $27,500 hasn't helped Camden's schools.
It won't either. Camden is the most corrupt place in the US. The only money made in Camden is via graft. Doesn't matter if it's the Port, the Aquarium, the Battleship, or anything else, if you work in Camden, someone is making money off of you. It's a disgrace. A prison. Anyone who has anything to do with that place will eventually be corrupted by it.
Burn it all down.
... Yes, I did work in low income housing in Camden for a couple of years when I was first married. I met lots of people I thought were doing good for the "community". I can name three who went to prison, and two more who should have gone to prison. My experience soured me to all politicians, no matter the party, and made me realize that people who started "non-profits" were in the money making business the same as everyone else.
I took a new job a little over a year ago. I'm not too thrilled with it, and I probably would have done better to stick to my old one. Now I've got another new opportunity bubbling up and I'm honestly not sure it's worth going for it. Is it worth jumping through all the hoops of interview after interview, adding that stress to my life if, in the end, I don't really want a new job? Or, more accurately, do I want to deal with the hassle of doing the same job for a new company and all that comes with that? More money? Maybe, probably not. Better benefits? Probably a company match on the 401k. Everything else is probably the same. How about comp plan? I dunno, I got a pretty good one, and the new company doesn't look to be doing any better on the sales side. The economy sucks again folks. Get ready. Companies are hiring, kinda, but the business of doing business is doing my business. ugh.
