1.5 administrators per teacher is excessive I agree but it's not the only problem. The thinking of it's a right to an education, the ideology behind the teaching, it's the "everyone is a winner" mentality while removing the competition aspect that has crippled our schools as well as our country, the thinking that more money solves all of our problems, and the teachers first, students second attitude that has destroyed our schools. We need trim the fat by cutting administration, make families realize that education is a privilege and if you're not on board you get left behind, remove the hidden ideologies and agendas from schools, offer vouchers for private education for those who can't afford it, quit wasting the taxpayers money for a fat administration and unqualified teachers who shouldn't be teaching but are protected by the unions while improving compensation for those teachers that are excelling, bring back competition so that the cream rises to the top which inspires those who are lacking to try harder, and put the students first, ahead of administration, teachers, agendas, tenures, etc...!Teachers, teachers,, bla, bla . You have never had contact with the army of administrative and support personnel in US schools. For every 39 teachers ACTUALLY teaching students in the USA, there are 61 administrative and support personnel. Guess why the per student costs are so high here.
In a rowing race between Japan and the US, the Japanese had 19 rowing and one supervisor and won the race. The US had 19 supervisors and one rowing. After the loss, republikans formed a committee to review the performance of the rower. Hiring more whipmasters is the only performance plan republikans can conceive.
Typical liberal, attack the opposition instead of suggesting solutions.
