MCPS and its magical math: Do its dollar figures mean anything?

Blogger note: Montgomery County Public Schools suddenly announced at their March 8 hearing that the cost of the Kendale facility ("Seven Locks Replacement School") has magically dropped from $14.7 million to $12 million - while expanding the size of the school by almost 4000 square feet.

All of this at a time when MCPS indicated dramatic increases in construction costs due to the county-wide building boom! And the Board of Education wonders why it has a credibility problem?
