One of my complaints is how the mass media ignores the Administrative bloat at Tweed which has seen a doubling of money since 2002 and an increase of 16,360 people at the DOE (teachers accounted for only an additional 1,000 to the increase). Finally, none other than the New York Post wrote an editorial that questioned why Bloomberg did not look at the DOE for additional cuts. In fact, the editorial stated the following"
He's vowing to cut some 6,000 teaching slots, for example, including more than 4,000 by layoff -- but he's also more than doubled school spending since '02.
Seems like a ripe target to us.
