Money would go a long way toward solving the problems. If teachers were paid more (like all other college educated professionals) the pool of people who wanted to teach would be much bigger. Schools could be more selective and teachers could be held to higher standards. With more competition in the industry things would improve. If look at the states the pay teachers the most they have the best national test scores. More money would also mean smaller classes. Students could get more of the individual attention they need. China spends more than triple per student on education than we do.
Some money may be wasted but all the fundraising that irritates you so much helps your child's school provide them materials and activities they enjoy. Without the extra money teachers wouldn't have any classroom supplies and field trips would be impossible.
