Talk about tone deaf!

In reply toRe: msg 1

An interesting consideration, compare Oklahoma to Florida, one state has 67 school districts (plus 4 special districts), one has 529, hmm, which has dramatically higher administrative overhead that is GOING to get paid LONG before any supplies reach classrooms or teachers get paid?  Making the rash assumption that Superintendents make at least $100,000 a year, Oklahoma had $55,570,000 in direct irreducible overhead, Florida has about $6,670,000 for similarly paid superintendents.  I do understand that some districts in Florida may pay more but when you have close to 400,000 kids in the district with 550 schools, that deserves more than casual pay.  The largest district in Oklahoma has 48,000 students, the smallest 43, why such silliness as a 43 student district, overhead must be extreme.

Reservation schools are Federal and do not enter into this argument.
