What if we quit pumping funding into US space programs for 5 years and used the $ for health care and education? Wouldn't that help a lot more people than the space programs that are not directly benefiting the good of many? Just an idea....what do you think? Good or bad?Answer Question

YOu can pump all the money you want into the education system. It will do little till teachers unions and administrators are required to REFORM. The US spends more per student than any other nation, yet our children receive failing grades in comparison. The problem is NOT money. It is bureaucrats, unions, and parents.

"Besides the government has ALREADY pumped hundreds of millions of dollars via subsidies and taxes in to the public school system, and overall the system is failing, because a disproportionately large chunk of those millions goes towards administrative costs, and does not trickle down to students."
Amen to that. On average, the school gets $10,000 per student. A single class of 30 would be $300,000. Multiply that by a school with 20 classrooms.... Do any of you see that kind of money in ANY classroom in the US? Heck, they only give the teachers around here $200 for class supplies.
