Usually agree with you but not entirely here.
Administrative support in our district does not lead to helping teachers focus on teaching. Ask most teachers in our district and they will tell you that. And I am not talking about the hand picked "rubber stampers" on the committees. If I send down a student for discipline at our school, nothing happens. There is very little support from the administration at our school.
Our district is so top heavy with so many layers justifying somebody's fat paycheck. All this talk about budget cuts and they added these 3 district zone leaders this year???? Now heres the kicker, LISD is indeed doing a better job than almost any other district the area. I hear real horror stories from the other districts. But LISD still needs to cut down on administration instead of trying to rid itself of the experienced teachers in whom it invested.
