    <div class="moz-cite-prefix">When I worked at a high school doing
      general IT work (they also wanted me to teach a programming
      class), I know an additional factor is the amount of garbage you
      had to deal with from administration, a lot of that from really
      lazy top-down legislation that sounded good before, but just put
      more busy work onto teacher's shoulders, and sure wasn't improving
      any quality (and costing more).<br>
      <br>
      I think a better question is why does additional money being given
      to schools usually end up in just a larger administrative staff
      (at least in my experience, it was like 6ish years ago).<br>
