    Elementary, because, children learn much faster when small than they do as adults.

    I would create my own school system from scratch, since the US public school system is corrupted by government intervention.

    I'd choose elementary school because these years establish academic and social foundations and require good student/teacher ratios and adjunct services. Children who don't develop reading skills, good social skills & a positive self-concept early on are disadvantaged throughout education and may lose interest in school entirely. When a school community breeds friendly, confident little readers, it will get a better crop of middle school & high school students.

    Why choose? 33 million to each. They are all important. However, I would change it up a bit more differently. If I were forced to donate to education levels, I would donate 1 million to as many schools as I could. If you donate to the state, you don't know what will happen to the money as much. This way it's easier to keep track of.

    Educated well at the elementary level is what I'd go for.   But some of that Billion would go to ensuring, as far as possible, a certain amount of education and counselling for the parents and older siblings of these kids.  That way what they learned at elementary school would not be sabotaged by those these kids regard as their role models.   For much of this Billion would go not just on 'reading, writing and ';rithmetic, but on such things as values, qualities...and what makes for a more sound society.

        Why simply waste it on academic subjects!
