46 Million for Newton

A day or two after mentioning that Boston might be firing 200 police officers and many school systems are laying off teachers because they don't have an extra $50K to keep them, I read in the Boston Globe that the "State" has awarded 46.6 Million dollars to Newton to fund their bloated, mismanaged high school building project.

They picked an expensive, designer "STARchitect" - Graham Gund who specializes in museums, not public schools.  His design uses non-standard components that will inflate the cost of the building. So, instead of leaving another angry comment at the end of the article, I want to find out why the "State" approved the money and what the needs are of every other high school.
