Letter: Schools must cut admins' jobs

I'm so frustrated with the school boards. Every year, they propose to cut the school budget by taking away from the children. Never have I seen a proposal that says we'll do away with administrative jobs.

Why do we have so many assistant positions? It seems that every superintendent has three assistants, and each high school has a principal and three assistant principals.

It's difficult to work in the private sector and watch the mismanagement of the districts, all dictated by unions and laws.
