I have kids in elementary school and education is a top priority in my book. I have heard numerous remarks from teachers about the top heavy structure of public education. There are way too many administration and school board employees, and many of them are paid double what a great teacher is paid. The workload of a teacher is almost limitless and it is linked to their effectiveness. The workload of administrators is light and only loosely correlated.

  1. Rather than saying "administration", point to specific activities or personnel--it's a more effective way to address issues.

    ... and unless you cite specific examples, you have published stats working against you. Utah's public ed administration consistently ranks better than most states both in terms of admin dollars per student and admin dollars as a percentage of education budget.
