Education Tax Dollars at Work

New Jersey school district pays $60,000 for a student’s vocational education. In performing arts, of course. Note the $49,000 cost on transportation.

For more than $4,000 per month, can’t they rent the kid’s family an apartment near the school and save on gas? Better yet, why not give the kid a voucher and a choice of where he wants to go (with transportation up to him or her)? With any luck they are also teaching the kid about "global warming."

Imagine all those mean anti-education Republicans who would want to cut such a necessary program!
