More nurses, less teachers

The 2006-07 MPS budget proposal has an interesting paradox.

According to a Journal Sentinel analysis, the budget includes:

Using $3 million in federal funds to add 20 school nurses, four psychologists and four social workers to MPS.

Ah, for the good 'ol days when schools provided an education and hospitals provided health care.
