Quinn Not backing down on forced school consolidation

“It’s just do we need so much of a layer of administration?” Quinn said. “I think I saw somewhere where there are 270-some school superintendents who make more money than the governor. I’m not so sure we need so many of them. Some of these school superintendents are supervising one school.”

He said he has assigned Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon to work on the consolidation issue.

“She’s from downstate Illinois and is sensitive to the importance of maintaining our schools, but not necessarily having more school districts than you can shake a stick at,” Quinn said. “Sometimes you have a grade school district and a high school district in the same place. And all these buildings and all these administrators and all these people who work for the administrators. We don’t need as many folks at the top level. We need folks on the front line.”
