Why We Need Fewer Public School Jobs, Not More | Cato @ Liberty.

I have complained for years about the number of extraneous  persons crowding the non-teaching portion of our education institutions.  I have said and I feel confident in this:  Guilford County could cut 50% of the Administration  and no one would miss them.  In fact, perhaps the actual educating of children might improve because teachers will have the time taken filling out forms generated by the administration to justify their positions to actually teach.

Why We Need Fewer Public School Jobs, Not More
