Tim McMenamin for North Clackamas School Board Position

The growth of administrative and non-teaching support staff in Oregon has more than tripled over the number of students and teachers since 1992. In the last 21 years the student population has grown by only 15 percent and teachers by only 13 percent. At the same time, the ranks of administrators and non-teaching support staff have grown by 43 percent. If administrative and support staff employment had grown in line with students, Oregon could have saved $300 million annually or hired 3,782 teachers statewide. Going forward, schools must refocus their priorities back on the classroom and away from education bureaucracy.
