School administrators have an almost unlimited amount of funding? Are you kidding me. I teach at a school with 2000 students. We had 5 VP, we are down to 3. That means each VP is responsible for around 650 students each, plus another 50 staff each. We had 8 counselors, we're down to 4 counselors. Each counselor is responsible for around 500 students each. This mean they have to make sure the students are on track to graduate. I have to buy my own supplies for my classroom. I pay $600.00 per month for health insur. Haven't seen a raise in almost 8 years. Have Master's and tech degree. Been teaching for 25 years, make around $75,000/year work an average of 8 hours per day. No pay summer vacation.
