An email sent to Say Yes to Education folks this morning;

Skip said there is a little more than $10 million in hand and a little under $41 million pledged.

Correct me if I didn't hear that, but that's what it sounded like Moore said, but didn't show up in the News and Record article. I told Donnie that's what I was operating on unless I heard different, and I haven't.

Walker Sanders told me the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro was charging its normal rates to manage the money

That's inexcusable. Skimming like that off of money meant for poor kids.

One of the speakers told the audience Guilford County was the third Chapter which doesn't appear to be true

I heard about 5 times the money is coming in over the next 4 to 6 years.

Say Yes has misled the public by giving the impression it's got the full $41 million.

Still don't have any numbers on how much was given out.

If Say Yes gives $2 million, $1,000 each for the whole school year, they just gave out 20% of the money in hand.

Leaves $8 million.

At 0% return, another $7.5 million comes in ($30 million / 4) next year, but the students double.

Say Yes pays out $4 million on the new class on top of the first one, leaves about $11.5 million, not counting what the 'foundations' and whomever else takes out of the pot.

Same math plus another class the next year with 2,000 more scholarships leaves about $13 million.

Same math plus another class the full 4 classes going at the same time leaves about $12.5 million.

See the problem? If another $7.5 million doesn't come in the next year, Say Yes is left with $4.5 million, which wouldn't cover the following year.

If a whole lot of new money doesn't come in over a long period of time, Say Yes runs out of money in less than 10 years, so don't go around telling grade school kids their college tuition is going to be covered, because it's probably not, which is most likely how all those other Say Yes chapters went under, and why the state stepped in for Syracuse.

It's time for some adults to step up and tell the truth, which Skip and friends have been hiding for more than a year.

It starts with actual numbers to crunch.
.
.
Now the time has come to get some answers from Say Yes now that the operating committee etc... is in place, and most know what the issues are.

Then the answers need to be reported by our local news outlets, which has a 80/20 chance of not happening.

I handed out about 100 fliers of this at the meeting; "Say Yes to Education and Say Yes Guilford Unanswered Questions"
