Dismissing administrators will help pilots, teachers

Regarding the front-page article in The Union on March 3 in which pilots expressed dismay concerning a significant increase in rates at the airport – despite a questionable surfeit of administrators – a similar ignominy appears to have befallen the educational administration for the Nevada County school system, as well.

Perhaps a parallel solution exists: In either case, simply dismiss the superfluous administrators. This instantly provides additional funds which, for the pilots, acts to reduce the amount of their rent increase, and for the threatened teachers, offers an opportunity to lose far fewer competent staff members than now proposed – particularly in view of the understandably meager response generated by the request for voluntary retirement.

Thus, through a supervisorial reduction, might the proposed dismissal of a number of local teaching staff members and an increase in hangar rentals be diminished in order to allow the achievement of a modicum of fiscal parity within each system.
