Lackof money is not the problem with public schools. Just the opposite: the morethey get, the worse they become. Since the schools in Washington, D.C. arehorrible and receive 2.8 times as much money per student as California schools,one could conclude that matching that funding level here in California woulddrop school performance to the D.C. level. Ugh. The teacher’s unions and thebureaucrats have created the current mess, and the only way out is to privatizeall California schools. It is a simple choice: do we care more about childrenor about unions and bureaucracy?
