|School administration costs questioned by local citizen|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
I have been following the school mill levy override and find it interesting. Teacher compensation definitely needs to be improved, as we all know teachers are the most important part of any good school system.
Many cuts have been made in Re-1J School District for 2010-11:
—one less teacher in math, grades 7-12.
—one less teacher in social studies, grades 7-12.
—one less elementary teacher in sixth grade.
—one less elementary teacher in third grade.
—one less library aide.
—one bus route eliminated.
What efforts have been made to decrease the costs of administration for the 2010-11 school year? Is administration and non-teaching personnel more important than teachers and students?
