When I was in school, you counted how many teachers there were for each bureaucrat. Now they count how many bureaucrats there are for each teacher. In most cases, I'm betting they could eliminate 80% of the non-teacher staff and hardly notice a difference for the students. Of course this would require turning down Federal funding, so schools didn't have all of the federal reporting requirements. (About 10 years ago in my state, the federal government paid for less than 10% of the education costs. I'm betting it is the same and that the cost of compliance is much higher than the money received. My husband tried to write a bill requiring a committee to investigate the cost of compliance with Federal regulations and compare it to the amount of money received to see if it was worth it. Almost every legislator was afraid to vote for the bill because they didn't want to be seen as anti-education. Of course, if the cost of compliance is higher than the federal funds, then eliminating both would put more money in education, but nobody seems to think that far ahead.
