Regarding the Feb. 22 news article “Duncan: ‘No fix’ for effect of sequestration on schools”:
In reading the scare’m clause about budget sequestration — “which could force thousands of teachers out of their jobs” — I could not help but wonder, as a retired high school teacher and college professor, why it did not mention that thousands of administrators could be fired?
Could it be that firing teachers frightens voting parents more than firing administrators does? Or is it the case perhaps that administrators don’t fire fellow administrators? This is a most interesting question. Perhaps The Post might enlighten us further.
