We can lament lost money all day, but the money is still gone. Why don't we hold districts accountable and demand that they use X% or X-amount of funding specifically for education of the pupil (textbooks, supplies, teacher salaries, field trips, etc)? Why don't we hold them accountable and demand that they provided a balanced presentation of information in hotly contested subjects? Why don't we demand new solutions to the poverty deficit (one that hasn't changed much since the "war on poverty" began)?
Nah...let's just sit and point fingers and whine. That will help.
