Lean, Not Mean

In comparison with other governmental agencies that have been criticized for "swimming in consultants," the Long Beach Unified School District is not even up to its little toe. The district used only a fraction of one percent of its general fund budget for professional/consulting services last year. Of its total unrestricted general fund budget, the district spent 0.5 percent for outside consultants. Source: 2003-04 LBUSD Adopted Budget
