Education as a Battleground

If you want to see the problem with American education realize that the number of district administrators grew by a whopping 87.6 percent from 2000 to 2019, far outstripping the growth in the number of students (7.6 percent) and teachers (8.7 percent).
I've posted this before but it explains much.
May Day 1933 When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side," I calmly say, "Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community."
we should end summer vacation, kids are no longer needed on farms, reduce it each year to allow parents to plan until is is down to a reasonable amount of time
Meanwhile, most schools had to kill their summer-school programs because the Unions made it so the most Sr. Union Members get first dibs. And that means the school pays the HIGHEST $/hr for keeping the session going.
Furthermore, this increase in salary is then used to calculate the base salary of the teacher, which is used to dole out the raises, and their retirement levels.
Encouraging the EXACT wrong behavior...
Paying Hospitals to HAVE problems
Paying Hospitals to SEE C19
Making new teachers have to work 10x harder than an existing teacher, so the turnover is super high, and they can claim how it's because of salaries...
Meanwhile, the number of teachers near me driving BMWs is mind-blowing... Only the new teachers are under paid.
And that's by design. Once you paid your dues... Then Moral Hazard kicks in, and you DEFEND the $$$ you now collect, and the rules that now protect you!
