After looking over the latter two pages, I started wondering what value are we getting for our money.

Looking at the size of her staff, and considering that there are five regions, we must be spending several million dollars a year on these regional offices.

Just what quantifiable results do we get for our investment of this money?

Are there others ways we could more effectively spend the money? Perhaps on more permanent classrooms, more teachers, or more educational materials?

Would our already poor educational results get any worse of we just cut out this layer of bureaucracy?

Do the benefits of these administrators really justify the costs?
