Davis is right on target regarding the glut of school administrators at the expense of overcrowded classrooms.
We recently organized a parents community group in La Puente because the Hacienda-La Puente Unified School District cut teaching positions and other instructional services, leaving intact a district office top-heavy with non-teaching administrative personnel.
We have also learned that district administrators receive, in addition to high salaries, fringe benefits such as cars, car insurance, gasoline, car maintenance and repairs, a tax-shelter stipend, travel and conference expenses, as well as a $25,000 life insurance policy, all paid by our hard-earned tax dollars.
If State Superintendent of Schools Bill Honig wants our future votes, we advise him to work on reducing class size, instead of justifying the glut of non-teaching administrator bureaucrats.
