Bloat brouhaha in LA

LAUSD `bloat’ draws outcries, reports the Los Angeles Daily News, which printed salaries of administrators and teachers in Los Angeles Unified.

. . . the LAUSD’s bureaucracy ballooned nearly 20 percent from 2001 to 2007. During that same period, 500 teaching positions were cut and enrollment dropped by 6 percent.

Administrators average $95,000 a year; teachers average $63,000.

    Some lifetime, I’m going to get a reasonable explanation for the phenomena of schools in trouble, but the higher-ups make more than God.

  2. California state government is bloated and in deficit in every department at every level. The disconnect from reality in CA state government is impossible to describe accurately. Anyone in CA who can take early retirement should do so soon, and move.
