The Cycle of Education

Courtesy of the Miami Herald, we have a complete look at the statist view of education provided by a representative on the Miami Dade School Board...

Here's the circle: If education is underfunded, the school district cannot pay teacher salaries that attract quality professionals. If we cannot attract quality teachers, we cannot get a higher quality education. If education is underfunded, we cannot buy computers to teach our children how to function in the 21st century; we cannot provide small classrooms and enhanced materials. Result: a poorly educated workforce that cannot attract the high skill businesses of the future.
J. Paul Getty who was considered one of the richest men in the world was reportedly asked, "How much money is enough?" He replied, "Just one dollar more."

I think if we were to ask the public school system how much money is enough to educate a child?" They would probably reply just as Mr. Getty did, "Just one dollar more."
