The United States as a whole spends over $90,000 on each student from K through 12. In the OECD only Switzerland spends more. It isn't the amount of money that's being spent it's how it's spent that determines the outcome. The teacher's unions have been in the drivers seat for years. Huge amounts of money have been wasted and kids have been short changed because of pandering to the unions. Whining about spending just serves to give cover to thieves and looters. This has to stop.
