WhackingDay: I bet you can chart the decline of American education on a simple graph showing the ratio of teachers to administrators. I honestly do not understand the need for so many of them. And it's even worse in higher eduction./dnrtfa
SevenizGud: There are so many problems with the American K-12 system.But money isn't one of them. We spend roughly $10K per student per year. I want you to let that number sink in just a little. My senior class had about 250 people in it. That's 2.5 LARGE. Where does that money go? I tell you where it does NOT go is to teacher's salaries. Personally, I'd like some benefactor say, you know what...fark it, I'm going to pony the money up to make incoming salary $100K, and see what happens.But there are many societal problems with it. One of the biggest is that school is just babysitting for a lot of parents. They show no interest in the child's education, and even if they did, they are probably too stupid to help. After all, what kind of farking moron has kids?There other is the well-publicized (here on FARK) snowflake effect. It is a disservice to society to have kids not get the shiat smacked out of them from time to time (I am not talking about physically), whence they then get their ass handed to them by their first boss, and expect mumsy and pappy to come ride in and set everything straight. This shiat aint real. Real is your dad shows up at your work site, and the boss has your dad carted off on a trespassing charge and he fills out TRO paperwork.One other thing that I think doesn't get enough attention, and that's special needs spending. I don't give a fark what their needs are. None of them are SPECIAL enough to spend 5x the amount on them that we do ordinary students. Why should tards be rewarded for being tards? I'm not saying tie up all tards in a closet. I am just saying it is wrong-headed to spend MORE on them.
