Adam Schuster from Illinois Policy said the bloat from the administration is affecting the taxpayers and the student’s test scores.

From Illinois Policy:
• Illinois spends more than any neighboring state and nearly double the national average on "general administration" costs.
• On average, school districts in Illinois spend $581 per student on school administration, or more than 2.5 times the national average.
• If Illinois spent the same as the national average on district administration, it would save $708 million on unnecessary bureaucratic spending that could be reinvested in classrooms or returned to property taxpayers.
