California seems to spend too much on too many things.

CA has one of the biggest budgets on education spending. Yet liberals calim that is not enough. The educrats are like fatso who can't stop eating. It is time for the educrats to gon on a diet.

BTW does nayone have a link that shows a pupil spending by state?

" The $50 billion annual education budget is basically an arbitrary figure generated by how much money there is as determined by Proposition 98 funding formulas and whatthe Legislature and governor are willing to spend on schools.

Time to research and see how many of the illegals kids education are being subsidized in the schools?

Rumor has it there will be a huge realstate market balloon bust soon in California, prices are hyperinflated.

Kick out the illegals and average spending per "pupil" (a ridiculous and archaic term used today only in liberal news articles about inadequate school funding) would go way, way up.

Maybe we should be hitting up Vicente Fox for some of those Pemex revenues to compensate California schools. ;)

The money goes to teacher salaries, period. The idea that the $7,000 somehow follows the student is ludicrous. Raising the amount basically means higher salaries for NEA members to spew their propaganda.

Years ago I read that 40 cents of every tax dollar goes to
K-12 education in California and if you add higher educa-
tion the figure is above $.50. I asked my father who is a
PhD and retired from the California State Dept of Educa-
tion. He believes the figures are much higher. Whatever the
true amount it is extremely high.

Before I would commit one more dime to public education I
would insist that every program, every department be
analysed to see where cuts can be made. This applies to
the local level, as well. I have heard that some larger
school districts have a superintendent in charge of trans-
portation with a salary to match the title and I wonder
if that is necessary.

I also wonder about some of the programs which somehow be-
come institutionalized in the state system. For example,
when times are good bi-lingual education may be a worthy
program. However, if it is treated as equally important as
math, science, and English then when the economy goes a
little south it becomes difficult to cut bi-lingual pro-
grams without also decreasing funds allocated to the tra-
ditional essential subjects.

Nearly half the budget goes to education and we have no idea if its really reaching the kids in need? Go figure!
