Betty Burney’s shameful use of children to make a buck
I am going to be honest. Whenever I hear Betty Burney’s name the hairs on the nape of my neck stick up. I don’t care for her. I believe in my heart she helped run our district into the ground and her objective in life is to make a very comfortable living off our children.
The timing was a bit suspicious at the school board meeting, a dozen children from her I’m a Star Foundation speaking about helping Duval’s homeless children. That’s a noble goal. I think it’s awesome that kids want to get involved in helping those that are less fortunate than them. Again though since Burney is involved I couldn’t help but feel there were ulterior motives to this show of force and sure enough it didn’t me long to find it.
Her I’m a star foundation, you know the one that just had a dozen (maybe more) kids talk about how they plan to eradicate homelessness is in line to get a fat contract from the district.
