Does “Education” Need More Money?

21 Jun

My fellow blogger at   has nicely summed up the problem with throwing more government (taxpayer)money at Education in his entry titled  More Funding for Education?  Revisited.

His summary:

“To paraphrase several proverbs, spending more money to do more of what has produced only failure in the past, produces nothing more than a more dramatic level of failure. “

I love it!

    There is no need to throw more money at education. I agree with the argument that doing so only produces more of what we already have. I say revamp the system with continuing education for teachers, a better vetting system for teachers, no tenure, and annual evaluations of teachers’ skills. Maybe then you’ll rid the school districts of those just there to earn a living and you’ll find more people who really care.

      Well said. I’m thinking we have a lot of company in thinking this way. I’m also thinking, though, that there’s a cultural component to this problem. Not enough parental encouragement of, and involvement in, educational achievement. The kids take home back-breaking loads of books in their knapsacks, but what in the world can they be doing with them once they are home, to be showing such poor results?

        I agree, it’s a lack of parental guidance. I have 3 boys, 2 of which are school age. When they’re with me, I see all their homework. I’m a bit of a disciplinarian when it comes to their studies. No TV, Xbox, PS3, nothing until the work is done.
