The pre-nup agreement

It's good to read from Rex in the City that the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools Board of Education is seriously considering hobbling any effort that Superintendent Pedro Garcia may make to flip his contract extension and recent positive buzz about student scores into a better gig elsewhere.

The clause states if Garcia were to resign to accept another offer of employment prior to a certain date, which will be updated in the new contract, he is to pay the Board liquidated damages, and not as a penalty, in the sum of $5,000 for each month from the date of resignation to the end of his contract.
Thanks for pushing that Ed.

In the meantime my question is "Why is Rex covering this and not the education reporters?"

It is my understanding that Rex is used for a story that has no indication that it isn't true, but may not have the required amount of independent verification.
