Here’s an idea, get rid of the bloated administration at each school system then give raises to teachers. Is any given superintendent worth all that cash and bennies?

Maybe it would also help to focus on basic education funding and not on pools, stadiums, locker rooms, and fluff classes?

How many times have we seen local schools cry for a tax hike for more teacher pay, then right after the hike goes into effect they suddenly get a new swimming pool and start crying for another tax hike to increase teacher pay….
