10. It's just an itch I had to scratch. :)

I find that decentralization actually makes things in education harder to deal with, even with computers. I'm thinking of the process we've had to go through to order tables for the new art rooms. It took all year, and now we even have to start over again. We have internet, email and online stores at our disposal, but yet this is taking longer than it would have back when we had district ordering and on-site carpenters working for the school. The district warehouses were cut in budget losses.

There's some idea that decentralization somehow creates efficiency, but I'm not sure what the basis of that philosophy is.
