Shocking statistic

Here is a shocking statistic about one of our school districts (no, not the story about the cheating going on):
The [Atlanta school] district has 6,000 employees, half of them teachers.
Imagine that! Three-thousand non-teaching employees; one for each teacher!
The next time a lefty wags his finger at you and claims your policies will cause teachers to be laid off, point to the Atlanta school district as an example ripe with opportunity for cost savings.

This is a great point. Aside from janitors what other personnel do schools need?

One superintendent and one secretary. That should cut the staff from 3000 to about 20.

That's not surprising and I bet its almost impossible to fire any of them.
