We have plenty of cash in the Ed budget for this. We just need to mandate that 90 cents on the dollar spent on education goes to classroom expenses. We could free up a big chunk of capital that way. If it turns out there isn't enough cash form the pre k program I would be open to spending more because I know it isn't going to pay for some administrative lackey whose workday consists of day trading and angry birds. In short, show me dept of Ed can spend money effectively and efficiently and I am happy to support funding shit like this.
“You may think RaiderH8r is just a thinker. But I’m not just a thinker. I’m a doer. Every day I go out there, and rev that engine, fire it up, grab a hold of that line between speed and chaos, and wrestle it to the ground like a demon cobra. And when the fear rises up in my belly, I use it. Fear is powerful, because it’s been there for billions of years. And it is good. And I use it. And I ride it; I ride it like a skeleton horse through the gates of hell.”
