Education of the individual has very little to do with setting in a government controlled environment.

The system is broke and one size does not fit all learning styles. Many do home schooling because the system does not recognize individuals and their special talents.
When education is focused on money everyone loses. The bigger problem in the quest to get federal money the schools have been forced to follow federal rules that alienate the students and teachers. The second problem is bussing and the waste it creates. Have children walk to community schools rather than one big government prison.
Let students follow their on inspirations at their own speed rather than fixed programing over fixed time. The classroom is not for everyone and many figured that out.

Tupelo schools are a good example where more money does nothing for dropout rates and test scores. Tupelo had great schools until testing and dropout rates became public knowledge. The Tupelo daily refused to publish facts and the power brokers downtown fought the parents. Guess who lost and who moved out of the district leaving even lower grades. Tupelo buys billboards instead of books.

Students do not need examinations. They do not need a ride to school. They need to walk to a local school and be inspired. Without the passion to learn all money thrown at schools is wasted.

The question to answer is how do you get students obsessed with learning? It is not by reward and punishment or testing. If the city set an example of earning your keep the students would be ashamed to take grant money and handouts. Tupelo reaps what it sews.
What a joker

The sup is not worried about wasting thousands on billboards, newspaper ads, and a full staff of public relations promotors. A teacher and an assistant does not make $70,000 so how many students could be taught how to attend class or learn to read if billboards were eliminated. The pride of Tupelo is no longer its public schools.
