The problem is in a large part the support sytem OUTSIDE the school system. Lack of parental guidence, lack of a real home life, etc...
Now, that is not to say such issues cannot be overcome, nor that kids without those issues to deal with cannot fail as well...but it is a major issue IMO - and one which more education funding will not fix.
many deems want to throw more money at it because that money mainly goes to the teachers' unions which in turn are major supporters of the DNC

so what? people work hard to move to areas with good schools. I cannot tell you how many people I know who say the reason why they moved to a community is that "the schools are good". why should someone who works hard and sacrifices have to see that sacrifice go nowhere?
