Education and Unwanted Fat

March 28, 2011

Just recently I tried to explain school budgets to someone.

“It’s like gaining weight,” I told them. “When you gain it – its all in your ass and your thighs. But when you lose it – its in your face and your boobs”.

“Schools,” I went on “are similar in that when they get money they spend it on an extra administrator or a redundant curriculum. But when they lose the money – they fire teachers”.
