Hanspete: Thats part of making public school funding a priority. Making sure the money gets to where it meeds to be by rooting out corruption. I dont mean just simply giving more money though i do support that as well.

But you don't need to increase funding to do that the schools have the money, it is that so much is wasted and we need to tackle that well before we talk any funding increases what-so-ever or the schools will just burn through hard-earned taxpayer dollars.

I didnt say increase it in the question i said make its funding a priority. That means anything you want whether it be an increase or just a change in how it works. Just focusing on it.

Our schools do not need more $, they wast to much already. Look at Finland's education system, the best in the world, they spend way less on education.

I didnt say make spending mormoney a priority. I said make funding more of a priority. That could just mean restructuturing how the miney is used.

And by the wat schools is kansas do not even have enough money to keep all their schools open. For funding they had to resort to having an online sex toy auction. That diesn siund like having olenty of miney. Its pretty bad in a lot of the southern states too.
