In the past month or so since my blogpost here at FreedomWorks was published, I have experienced the best and worst people, amazing opportunities and the negatives of trying to get a powerful message across about our biased school system.

California School District to Spend $1 Billion to borrow $105 Million

California has lost 600,000 jobs in the last decade and has a $26 billion deficit. Their public schools aren’t performing well, with lower grades and graduation rates than students in other states. It makes sense that a community would want to invest in education, but one would expect reasonable return on investment.
