This is a follow-up to the previous post, "What Would Sam Walton Say?," in which we expose the guys trying to cover their collective tracks for misappropriating grant funds from the Walton Family Foundation (WFF).
We have attached the Horizon Denison Middle School application for the WFF funding and found some interesting information.
For instance, the guys claim that they will compensate teachers up to 5% of their annual salaries as a type of performance incentive (Section V, page 7 of the application). As for that fictional "point system," it was never in existence according to the teachers we have spoken to. We know for a fact that no teacher at Dension ever received any type of performance compensation as per the WFF application.
A few teachers received $500.00 for Ohio Achievement Test results, but that is unrelated to the WFF application. So where's the rest of the money that they promised WFF they would pay the teachers with as per the grant funding application?
Let's just take the average salary of an American teacher working at one of the boys' charter schools (because we know that the Turkish teachers have an entirely different "salary schedule"), and place it at around$34,000 and then "pretend" (like the guys do ), that the teachers met the fictional criteria set in the "imaginary" performance assessment. That means if the teachers met the "point system" criteria that they would have received a performance bonus of $1700.00; and we know that never happened (at least not for the American teachers).
Now if we were part of the Walton Family Foundation, we certainly would like to know what the boys actually did with the almost 1 million bucks (4 schools at $230,000 each) that they gave them in grant money. Actually, we still want to know...
