    True, but in the USA, school districts can sucker the taxpayer for more money by having the use of a high cost special trained transportation written into the kid's education plan, thereby creating employment for their friends and family. After all, in the USA, the public education system is operated by families in most districts. Generations of educators make a lot of money off the taxpayer that way.

    in the end, the adults in this systm make all the money, and the kids get squat. Let's face it, it does not take a ton of money to teach anyone anything. Public schools in the USA are nothing more than antiquated baby sitters for parents who need to work two or three jobs to pay taxes for these educators.

    This is NOT a problem of govt, but a problem of lack of interest in the school system by the voters. In any area where citizens care, something like this would be either addressed and fixed or never allowed to happen. Citizens must maintain oversight.

    It is the problem of government because the government was to be the gate keeper of the tax money that is allocated.

    People in the education system have a billion reasons why they are very expensive failures. They blame everthing on everything. But they never blame themselves. They have unions to back them.

    One thing they do very well is get State governemnts to pay for anything they want to make educators happy. Very happy.
    They can get more money for smaller classes, more teachers, more schools, less accountability, more administrators, and they do successfully maipulate media and politicians And they still fail. But ask them to do something as simple as baby sit effectively and they will fail.

    Lets face it, private schools do a far superior job for less, because their bottom line requires it. "No tiki no money".

    Sure they will give you tons of excuses about mexicans, retarded kids, language barriers, and on and on about why they continue to fail. But ask them to use these as an excuse for more money and they will be successfull to get governments to pay for it, and still fail.

    The Wisconsin Governer tried to do something about it and the Unions and broadcast media shut him down.

    Public school education is not as important as they think, and not worth the money taxpayer pay for it. Those who make it through will never use most of what they teach in real life. And the real learning of will begin after high school.

    Example, Jorge Boooooosh, poster child for a retarded person making it to president of the USA. Private school or public? Hence the private schools also have retarded students they deal with, and they go on to be president.
