I have left numerous comments on here all leading to the same direction and focus. However us as humans rarely make decisions based on logic, almost always on emotions. The amount of logic a person needs to make logical decisions is rather small. So lets say that the amount of logic a person needs can fit on the end of a straight pin. However that logic needs to penetrate into that person so they can use the power of emotion and the wisdom of logic at the same time. So that straight pin with all that logic is thrown at them. Does it penetrate? of course not, it simply bounces off becuase there is nothing to drive that logic home. So once again the straight pin with all that logic is thrown at them excpet this time it is attached to the end of a broom stick. Will the needed amount of logic penetrate? Yes it will. However it seems that most elected officals need to have that pin attached to a telephone pole!

Lynn you are saying just what i mean. Have CPS deal with parents that do not do their jobs as parents and let the school teach. schools are not a day care center. You have to stop coming to the people for more taxes. would you believe that more then .50% of each dollar goes for pay and benefits and not school needs. maybe we should look at what Wisconsin did. They have lots of money now. You know what they did?

In my original post, I was referring to the district office.

Our district office administration only accounts for 3% of the entire district budget. That is the lowest percentage for any school district around. Most are about 6-7% of entire budget. There are not many fat cats to cut. Most of them in T.V.U.S.D. have already taken big pay cuts. The school board is going to take a big pay cut this year too.
