Delaware schools facing budget cuts have or are in the process of laying off staff.
And of course the cuts are where students need staff the most; support staff, Para-professionals.
Of course none of the schools have announced lay-off for administrators. Really? Give me 5 seconds to act surprised. I guess if administrators are laid off the superintendents may have more responsibility; that’s scary.
I don’t understand why the governor won’t mandate for every 5 or 10 staffers laid off that a certain percentage of administrators should go as well. Might that take a little courage. Probably if the State Board of Education mandated administrator cuts they’d have to cut some from their little empire. That ain’t gonna happen.
Instead what happened is the superintendents told the budget people they would accept the budget cuts and they would be responsible for staff reduction.
What a shame! Delaware is among the highest in the nation with top heavy administrators.
