Friday Stupid: Smoking Hot Celeb Chimes In On California’s Fiscal Woes

There are many reasons why certain Hollywood celebs should act more like children, and simply be seen, not heard. Here’s one of them, courtesy of Megan Fox

As Allah points out, no mention of the crippling union requirements. No mention of the idiotic decisions by the State government which have led to this sad state of affairs in California. No mention of the enormous amounts of money being spent by the state to educate illegal aliens. Matt Welch brings in on

State and local governments, in case you haven’t noticed, are out of money. One of the biggest reasons they are out of money is because they spend twice as much money on K-12 education (adjusted for inflation) than they did four decades ago, without producing any noticeable improvements. One reason for this is that it remains implausibly difficult to fire lousy teachers. This is all especially true in basket-case California, and particlarly in looney-bin Los Angeles.

He also wonders what the point of the video was since Fox wasn’t writhing around in a bikini.

    Education….. and by a wide margin.

    For Corrections and Rehabilitation, the budget over $8 billion or 6.8% of the budget.

    For Education (K-12), the budget is $36.8 billion or 31% of the budget.

    For Higher Education, the budget is $12.6 billion or 10.6% of the budget.

    Source: http://www.ebudget.ca.gov/StateAgencyBudgets/6013/agency.html

    That would mean that the total budget for education is over $49.4 billion dollars or 47.6% of the total budget, compared to $8 billion or 6.8 % of the budget.

    So if your argument was that California spends more or prisons than education, the facts are against you.

    Not only that, but something else is against you – the idea that spending more “en toto” or spending more per student does not increase performance of students. Study after study continues to prove that.

    It isn’t the money, it is what is done with it. Until teacher unions, administrations and legislatures understand that throwing money at a problem without accountability for the end product, the system will never get better.

    The teacher’s unions leadership is at odds with the public. The public wants well educated and motivated kids. The unions want to protect the jobs of their members at whatever cost.

    And for that investment you get three states that perform in the top ten and the rest are in the middle of the pack.

    Minnesota, which has the best schools, is ranked 22nd in expenditures per pupil, 41st in class size, and 17th in teacher’s salaries.

    The worst schools can be found in the District of Columbia, which is ranked 3rd in spending per student, 18th in class size, and 1st in teacher’s salaries.

    Clearly throwing money at this issue does not guarantee results but Democrats seem to think it does.

    You don’t believe in investing in education. You believe in throwing money at a problem to feel good about it, and the heck with the results.

    Also, please note that the prison population is swollen by illegals who commit crimes. Just as the schools are impacted by the children of illegals.

    The schools I went to are now nightmares, and anyone who can afford it sends the kids to private school.
