Education Establishment Excesses

Jose Fernandez, who oversees the Centinela Valley Union High School District in Lawndale, Calif., reportedly earned $663,000 in 2013, according to KCAL-TV.

His district includes only three high schools with a combined total of 6,500 students. The district also reportedly floated Fernandez a loan of more than $900,000 at 2 percent interest over 40 years. The loan was granted at a time when the superintendent had already declared bankruptcy.

Not so sweet:
Caryn Charles is a high school teacher in Hawthorne, Calif., and she says she has to pay out of pocket for paper for her students while the district lavishes the superintendent with handsome loans and a massive salary.

Just to compare, this article indicates a family can do a very good job giving a child a superior education at a cost of just under $700 a year, per student. In my own personal experience, we sometimes spent more, sometimes less per child when we were homeschooling - depending on age and extra curricular activities. 

There's a lesson here: elites want you to depend on them so they can reap the rewards (theirs) which come with dependance. It's how the incompetent survive.
