Fixing the Bucket

Why does our school system cost so much? And what are we getting for that money? And how else could the money be spent to provide education? California state senator Tom McClintock has some answers. Or at least, a pretty witty commentary:

...The school I have just described is the school we're paying for. Maybe it's time to ask why it's not the school we're getting.

Other, wiser, governors have made the prudent decision not to ask such embarrassing questions of the education-industrial complex because it makes them very angry. Apparently the unions believe that with enough of a beating, Gov. Schwarzenegger will see things the same way.

Perhaps. But there's an old saying that you can't fill a broken bucket by pouring more water into it. Maybe it's time to fix the bucket.

Read the whole thing.
