Monday, Jan. 14, 2008 | Overpayments of their salaries do not belong to the employees of the San Diego Unified School District. That money is for the students’ education. Employees’ claims that they shouldn’t have to be penalized for the mistake of a payroll clerk smacks of ethical problems within the district. They had no problem spending money they were not entitled to so it should not be a problem to write out a check for repayment. Anything less is stealing from the children.
