Thank you for sharing your experiences as a public schoolteacher. Many voters and politicians would benefit from hearing your point of view and understanding that “more funding” does not necessarily lead directly to better public education. As someone who works in Title 1 schools, I personally believe that public education should be the focal point of federal funding and education reform (rather than focusing on alternative forms of education like school choice and charter schools), but I appreciate your viewpoint and hope people who are passionate about this topic come across your article.
