Someone has to pay for all the illegal alien kids in our school systems. Stick it to the taxpayers. It will never stop. We can't afford to educate every child of an illegal alien that is in our country! Our educational system is falling apart and failing for lack of money to keep paying for kids we should not be responsible to educate.

Anyone who thinks this money is going to educate kids is just fooling themselves. They need it to fund PERA. They are still projecting the earnings for the retirement fund at 8% so it's obviously underfunded. That means the private sector, who have to pay for their 401k's out of their own earnings, also have to pay more in taxes to fund the sweet deal negotiated by the teachers union.

It's not about the kids.

So called "education" in this country is a big piggy in a sty slurping at a trough.

It never gets enough but gets fatter and fatter and gives trouble in return.

At least real PIGS GIVE us bacon and port meat.

Can't say that for the indoctrination centers of this nation these days. THAT is what those hell holes have become.
