Schools don't need to maintain a huge administrative structure. They only need a skeleton staff to coordinate services. Who will provide services? Outsiders, contractors, parents, and volunteers should be used to provide support services for kids to learn and for teachers to do their job well.

What can be contracted out to private suppliers of services? I reckon a few of these are: meals, bookeeping, school supplies, photocopying and material reproduction, etc.. Can you suggest others?

Should parents be involved in deciding what their children should learn? How far can schools accommodate the parents' wishes for certain kinds of learning, knowledge or whatever?

How do schools encourage volunteer work in schools? Do they even think of the benefits of volunteers, particularly from parents who are at home playing cards. Does volunteering help the level of understanding of parents and citizens about what goes on in school?

I would think that parents as voluteers would be a great source of support not only for the school at large but for their children. Children will see that their parents care about their school and would respect school property and reduce incidence of vandalism in school. Then schools will probably maintain their facilities better, donors will want to continue to provide equipment for schools towards improving their learning, etc...

What do you think parents and donors?
