Our Tax Dollars Hard At Work

Just received one of the many puff pieces our local school district sends out in an effort to justify its existence. After spending years on our state's financial and academic watchlists, it needs all the good PR it can buy. This particular quote is from the principal of one district school that recently "transformed itself":

"Over the past few years, XXX School has transformed itself," says Principal John Doe. "There is a palpable sense of the good things happening at XXX. We have embraced the philosophy, 'If the horse is dead, get off of the horse.'" (emphasis theirs)

(As Dave Barry would say, I am not making this up. Hat tip to dd15, who encouraged me to put the quote on this blog.)
