In this incident I was talking about FL it has always been touted as a "Blue State".
But you are correct this has been coming on for a long time, one tihng is a fact though, the liberal/socialist states have a lot more money problems then the conservative states.
Send , spend, spend and then raising taxes never works.
The spending needs to be brought under control.
I'm just tired of hearing that old excuse that people that don't want to pay more taxes are being selfish, no the people that want to spend more off my money are the selfish one's

So if we cut education funding to zero, we would get the same results as we do currently?

Seriously? If we cut education funding to zero, teachers and schools wouldn't have any money. How would that work?

They reported this morning that the national average per student spending per year is $11,000.00,
That works out to over $200,000.00 per class room. And there is not enough money, HAH it's the system that is the problem not the money.
