The schools need money.  The schools always need money, since 1978.

Yes, there’s probably mismanagement, but there’s always mismanagement.  They still need the money.  Education should be one of our top priorities.  There’s no future without it.  And they’re barely functional – probably partly due to mismanagement, but mostly due to lack of money.  Perennially since 1978 after which California dropped from the top 10 state educational systems in the country to the bottom 10, perennially, in just a few years.

Starving them of money has never improved management.  If anything, it gets worse.

Give them the money.
