Yeah. let’s do to parenting what the War on Poverty did to Poverty.
I’m anxiously awaiting MSNBC to come out in favor of School Choice, where parents can pick the best commune-ity for their kids.
Inconvenient Truth time:
The number of supervisory staff in public schools increased to 42,000 this year from 31,332 in 1997, even as student enrollment statewide fell and performance rankings sat stagnant, according to a Post analysis of state Education Department data.
The state’s student population dropped to 2.7 million from 2.8 million — or 4.6 percent — during that period.
I’m guessing what MSNBC is really in favor of, is more Dem voters, like those loyal and selfless teachers.
And during that same span, the number of rank-and-file teachers grew to 214,000 from 194,957 — a 9.8 percent increase.
As a result, overall public-school expenditures more than doubled, from $26 billion to $58 billion statewide.
