I'm always amazed at how our nation thinks that throwing money at nearly every problem is the ultimate solution. In the matter of low test scores I believe that the only voters to blame are teachers and parents. Certainly school administrators that are so busy worrying about all the wrong things (like blue hair) share some of the blame, while the place where the rubber really meets the road is in the classroom and after school in the home.
If you really want to throw money at a problem why don't you throw it at afer school tutoring for kids who have single parent homes with one working parent. Money should also be alloted for students that have difficulty learning for whatever the reason. Stop all of the arguing about languages, school size and taxes. Get back to the real point of school, teaching the kids.
