Cut, cut, cut. Slash and burn. The taxpayers need relief!

Refuse to fund charter schools!
Cut all music, gym, and art programs!
Cut most funding to special education programs!
Eliminate "diversity" programs!
Get back to the three "R's"!
Return to "tracking" students. Let's face it, teachers know by third or fourth grade if a kid is destined to be a surgeon or a grave digger... why don't we save money and educate them accordingly?

We need to be proactive in creating a competitive educational environment in the United States. Do you think the Chinese are blasting past us in match and science because they have smarter students? No... it's because they don't waste their time on frivilous subjects!

With regards to the Albany schools, most of those little cretins are going to end up in prison anyway. There's no good reason to spend anything more than the absolute minimum in educating them.
