25. I think that's due to boards spending too much time with administration
and not enough time with the rest of the district staff.

All staff, except of course administrators, have to go through channels to get their issues heard so by the time the board hears about it the message has usually been tweaked or in someway discounted by those in power. If it's not to their benefit that is. With the political climate the way it is the boards usually have a few irrational union haters and many "I'm jealous they have the summer off" members.
One example: When contracts are negotiated the administration is the go between but when it comes time for administration they negotiate directly with the board so no one tempers their requests.
