You and I think schools are important. So do those on the “other side”. Oddly enough, while the latest Billionaire Reformers claim the future of America–its economy, safety, world status, etc– rests on “reforming” schools, (especially for the poor since we already outscore the rest of the world if we eliminate low-income scorers) they always seem to have enough money for new military expenses–even more than the military asks for. Remember that old slogan–something like, when the army raises money from bake sales and schools can count on fair taxes we’ll know which is important. I don’t have it quite right–but you get it. .
Interesting exception. When it comes to the offspring of the rich: then they spend as wildly as the military.
Priorities become clear when one “follows the money”.
