Money won't fix education system

December 12, 2012 

Proposition 30 passed with the support of union money, and radio ads are thanking the voters for their support by voting against the nasty opposition. It's not every day you get $6 billion when you have such a great educational system.

Take a bow for being 48th in the nation in education and fifth from the bottom in vocabulary.

Talk is not getting the job done and where do you propose to change your direction? How many more years will you ask for more money? Who's in charge of getting on top of what's wrong with the educational system in California?

The silence is deafening.
