Comment: public schools are political patronage (Score 1) 309

there's too much money at the county (parish) level to reduce employment. public schools make up a majority of the full-time jobs in 50 counties of my state. the teachers (unions) provide political pressure/support across the board. yes, reducing teacher head-count might make rational sense. politically, nope.

If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature. If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
