Spending may not improve education

While visiting your wonderful city, I read a Sun article, “Unions to seek initiative for business profits tax” that discussed the need to “fix our education system.” The Sun’s Sunday editorial “Move education forward” asserted “the district still needs to improve student achievement.”

OK, but who will guarantee that spending more money will improve education?

Every second of class time is already used, so what new material will be added as replacement and how will the teaching process be changed?

Statistics record 63,329 doctorates in education were awarded during the past decade. Can those new doctors answer those simple questions, because politicians can’t.
