Wanna Cut Education Budgets?

The Education Intelligence Agency reveals one place to look:
US Averages One District Administrator for Every 47 Teachers. EIA's latest examination of U.S. public education staffing statistics reveals that, on average, school districts employ one administrator for every 47 teachers. This number refers to superintendents, assistant superintendents, resource managers, and other professionals who work at district level offices. It does not include school administrators such as principals, state agency officials, or even district support staffers.

Among states, South Carolina leads the rankings with one school district administrator for every 171 full-time equivalent teachers, with Utah second at 133, and Louisiana third at 126. New Mexico is at the bottom of the rankings, with one school district administrator for every 17.5 full-time equivalent teachers, with North Dakota just above at 18.6, and Ohio at 19.7.

The full rankings are available as Table 7 on EIA's school pay and staffing statistics web page at http://www.eiaonline.com/statistics.htm.
