Delaware Sheds Excess Cars, But Not Enough

According to the News Journal, Delaware's Governor plans to get eliminate some 135 state-funded cars, that have in the past been supplied free of charge to cabinet officials in addition to their salaries. I applaud this as a step in the right direction.

The correct path is made up of many steps. I suggest that the next step be to consolidate the dozens of entirely unnecessary school districts that drain funding from our students education, and the state coffers. Each of these superfluous school districts have over-paid superintendents, and a full staff to support them. I believe that most of them (the already over-paid administrators) also have semi-secret contract provisions that give them each thousands of our dollars per year for their automobile expenses.

Why is it that the Governor can't see the millions of dollars we are wasting in our education system? Who is lobbying to keep it as it is?
