Buffalo Teachers Blow $9 Million in Public Money on Plastic Surgery in 1 Year

Why is it that we shovel more and more money at public education, but its quality just keeps getting worse? This offers a clue:

Buffalo teachers left taxpayers on the hook for nearly $9 million worth of cosmetic surgery last year, according to the state-appointed authority overseeing public school finances.

The Buffalo Fiscal Stability Authority found that last year’s costs for elective procedures such as chemical peels and other skin treatments were up $8 million over 2004’s $1 million tab for cosmetic surgery.

The procedures, provided under the teachers’ union contract, accounted for 9 percent of the district’s total spending on health benefits for employees and retirees, The Buffalo News reported Thursday.

Party hardy, public employees. Very soon the people footing the bill for your wild times are going to rise up and put a stop to the fun. So spend fast, before someone shuts off the money spigot.

Since we’re paying for it, let’s hope the teachers’ plastic surgery turned out better than Jacko’s.
