Take it from someone who has been involved in the school system in the past...there is tons of fraud, waste and abuse that can be cut and never touch the classroom.

Sumbeach is correct, spending has nearly doubled over the last ten years without a corresponding student growth. If that upsets you, look at the 10 years before that. The same thing happened. Ask the question, "How much per student are we paying to educate our children?" Then compare that to ten or twenty years ago. Now ask yourself, what are we getting for the extra money that we are spending?

We here on TV, education is an "investment" not an "expense". It's time for us to ask, if it is an investment, what are we getting for our money? Keep in mind that there are many people getting filthy rich from our tax dollars going into education, and it is NOT the classroom teacher. Look at consultants, architects, building contractors, administrators, vendors. The education industry in Texas probably rivals that of the oil industry in total dollars moving through our economy.

School districts and Boards are trained to raise taxes. It's that simple. They can raise taxes a certain percentage without fear of a rollback. They are trained to do just that. The reason...If they don't, it will hurt their ability to get more in later years. Sort of like compounding interest in your savings account. Get as much as you can as fast as you can, they will find a way to spend it.

As far as Administrators salaries go, I always hear how they need to be the same as executives outside the education business. I have to laugh. All these Administrators have to do is SPEND money. There is no time spent on figuring out on how to make money (a profit). Making money is the trick in business, it keeps the doors open. If a business owner can only spend money, he goes out of business quickly. I contend that just about anyone can spend money, so why pay them so much?

There are alot of problems with the way we spend our tax dollars and I hope that we all are starting to pay more attention to the way they are spent. Personally, I don't thing the people in office right now will change. They need to be replaced with new people with fresh ideas to get things under control.
