If ya live in a state where school funding is based on mils and community vote when it comes to getting more funding; what are your views? Is enough, enough? Or should we always make sure our schools are properly funded? It would be interested to hear from those in states where school funding is completely different as well!
Schools should absolutely be properly funded.
That does not mean, however, that funding should be included for top heavy administration, electric shades and the such, or for overpaying teachers (which does happen in some cases).
Education is the future of our country and must be funded to provide that. Just not the extent it is in many places today.
I couldn't agree more, but we need to see reform on the state level that allows for equal funding across the board. There are too many schools suffering while the school down the street gets the newest and up to date equipment and infrastructure.
In Canada with FN we had a huge gap with education and still making news purse strings are controlled by gov't therefore, we pay out what we are given. So, when a cap is applied for X years, and price of education rises, we fell behind yes, we got mad since we got threats of school closure, cutbacks on programs. So, working with the school we found 60% went to 'salaries' we weren't happy about that either since those $$'s is for education programs but ..... so, a lot of people make $$ off the FN, easy.

A news report stated that a majority of 4th and 8th grade students are not proficient in math skills. Our government is working to fund schools but we see little results. What do you think, read my blog. I am interested in your comments.
