Nixa board member criticizes Blunt education plan
Of course, there is time to work out flaws in Governor Matt Blunt's 65 percent education plan (which requires 65 percent of funding for education go directly to the classroom), but Nixa Board of Education member Brenda Rantz, in a column in today's Springfield News-Leader, points out some serious flaws in the plan.
No one, especially a classroom teacher, is in favor of outlandish salaries for administrative personnel, but there are many services required by federal and state governments that require a considerable number of administrators just to make sure it is done. Perhaps that is an area the governor and our state legislators should consider as they work on this plan.
