Re: “Schools get priority over state bridges” (TNT, 6-9).

So are these legislators guaranteeing that spending more money on our schools will give us better results? As I understand it, the U.S. spends more money per student than all other countries. But our students consistently underperform compared to the world’s students.

How about actually improving our kids education, not just blindly throwing more money at it.
