The school funding gap is not really complicated! We simply have been brainwashed into the "progressive" idea of doing all things for all people, and school expenditures are the perfect example! Like in Pampa, we just put taxpayers into unneeded debt to build a new school we didn't need! In the past, schools had football, basketball, and maybe baseball teams, now , in schools, as in all our society, the loud, minority special interest groups demand matching funds for all kinds of unneeded activities! Mandates have added huge numbers of non essential staff to all schools and all states should refuse to implement every goof ball idea the the federal gov't demands! There is no better no better example of the need to return to state educational sovereignty than the fact it is bankrupting the states!

What "unneeded activities" are you talking about? Could you give some examples, please?
What are some examples of those you would consider "non essential staff"?
True, the federal government, imo, has no need to control the state educational systems, but, at least in Texas, there are unreasonable demands placed on the educational system by the state itself, not the federal government. eg. the entire testing structure imposted by the state that has taken over the schools.
