Yesterday local educators got to hear what they wanted to hear from our politicians -- or our politicians told them what they thought they wanted to hear.
No one says that schools already have all the money they need to educate our students. No one says that maybe the problem is that the money is not being spent wisely.
With all our businesses leaving, that big-ol-pot of school money is the only game in town. People have all kinds of ideas on how to get their hands in it, creating little jobs for themselves. They do ... the curriculum/school mission gets diluted ... and the main job of educating gets lost in the shuffle.
Maybe the problem is our schools have TOO MUCH money.
