I firmly believe that the importance of education cannot be overstated.
However, over the past 40 years I have observed the ongoing requests for more money by the education establishment, in order to achieve this admirable goal.
Also, during this same time frame, surveys of scholastic achievement, in general, have been negative.
I do not pretend to have the solution, but I do agree with the one who said that stupidity consists of doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.
