Everyone talks about minority education but this is just a ruse.
It is a game and a game where the students lose every time.
The Public Schools and their Unions can only push for higher funding if there is a problem to be solved. Minority graduation rates are low - fix it by giving the Education Establishment more money. All of this money funds the Unions which then funds the politicians that increase Union members and thus the Union coffers.
There is no interest in educating children. There is no money in it.
However, there is a lot of money in failure and the Teacher's Unions are taking that to the bank!
