Education--Big Union, Bigger Money

The article “Big Union, Bigger Money” is the perfect example that we don’t need more money for education, but we need more education for our money.”

This article demonstrates the waste in the educational budget. Administrators and Union Officials are receiving more and more and the teachers are not being rewarded for doing a good job

If Nevada would cut school administrative expenses instead of laying off teachers and if Nevada would stop social promotion in all grades levels, we would see a vast improvement in the education of our children without spending more money.

Since the legislature can only create the budget amount and cannot specify how it should be spent, I suggest that the budget be divided into 2 parts: the administrative budget and the teaching budget. The departments in each budget would be specified. Then cut the administrative budget by about 15% and add 15% to the teaching budget. Put the money where it belongs. Put it in the classroom
