All of these school districts in Pennsylvania are complaining about running deficits in their education budgets. Well, here are the reasons: Spending millions of dollars on new school buildings we don’t need. Fix up or renovate the old ones, it’s cheaper and just as good; Outlandish high salaries for principals, teachers and sports coaches; Building sports stadiums and busing the sports teams all over the country.

When all is said and done, there is no money left to buy books and tablets and pencils and educate the kids. These school districts are going to have to economize, after all, us taxpayers are not all millionaires.
