Recycling Old and Failed Ideas

We have TRIPLED expenditures in REAL $ (adjusted for inflation) on education over the last 30 years, yet test results have stagnated/flatlined. Essentially, we are pissing away $ on bureaucracy, faulty liberal, PC theories, and paying bad teachers more all-in. Einstein liked to note that a good definition of insanity is persisting in the same behavior which has failed. Those who do not learn from mistakes are doomed to repeat them. We are simply pouring more 4 down a rat hole.

President Obama's approach to so-called "climate change" appears to include recycling old ideas.

In his State of the Union address, the president recycled the idea of spending more on education, though we are still getting unsatisfactory results. A fact he inadvertently acknowledged by saying we're not keeping up with other countries in science and math. He maintained there are tens of thousands of jobs available but companies can't fill them because public schools aren't teaching students what they need to know. We spend huge sums on education already, so money and achievement must not be related.

Infrastructure? We've heard...
