Letter to the Editor: PROP 30 - More money for the School Administrators

The State of California is in debt about $16 billion. I say "about" because politicians have done such an inept job of keeping track of the people's money, they haven't a clue as to what we actually owe.

Yet, Kandy Tobiassen, Elk Grove chapter president of the California School Employees Association, want the tax payers to increase the California debt another $6 billion by approving Prop 30. That makes the debt $22 billion (with a "B"). Every year the union wants more money for our schools and almost every year we give them more money "for the children." Tobiassen claims the loss of more "quality programs." Does she mean programs that teach 3rd graders how to put condoms on cucumbers?

Teachers are not under paid. They work on the average of 9 months out of the year and make well over what the average private employees salary, without even considering benefits.

We've asked the Police to do with less and we've asked to Fire Fighters to do with less. How about we ask for the school Administrators to do with less.

You want to save money in the school system Ms. Tobiassen, cut the number of school administrator in half. So far the product coming out of California school is not worth their wages.
