Effective government

Cut supervisors and management

Level the layers and layers of supervision and management. If the Seattle Public Schools had the same ratio of students to teachers as the City of Seattle has line staff to supervisors and managers, our students would be in learning utopia. Supervisors and Managers should have a minimum of 8 staff reporting to each to justify the position and compensation.
