Money well spent?

It seems that we have been at war since the beginning of time. Actually, this is most likely the case. However, our educational system has subsequently floundered due to our preoccupation with war, fear mongering, and propaganda that is fed to us on a daily basis by the media. It is evident that most people today get all their information from the television. Peter Finch’s character in “Network” (1976) examines the media in a time before it became the monstrosity that it is today.


If one was to look at the federal budget for 2013 on our national defense and compare to the the budget  department of education of that same year one would see the vast disparity in where federal dollars are being sent. The government spends approximately seven times more on our national defense than on education. Also, government spending on education has decreased dramatically since No Child Left Behind’s enactment. One can conclude that government is getting what it has payed for. Is the game rigged? There seems to be no straight answer for the problems facing education. However, I think the majority would agree that funding is a major issue. If the schools do not have the resources needed then how can teachers provide an environment where learning is at its full capacity? It simply cannot be done. However, will that ever change? Or is it just a constant struggle that will continue forever in education. Are we doomed? The video below gives some insight into what education was and what it has become.

  1. I can certainly agree that government does seem to prioritize their budgets on a variety of items thus leaving education and its resources as secondary. For as long as I can remember, it seems that the common issue from one administration to another has been educational reform. The question is how has these changes helped the targeted areas, school districts and communities. Has the little that they have received been allocated and managed appropriately?

      great points. Education seems to be the one issue every administration struggles with (especially within the last 20 years). Also, I’m sure that school admins are not doing it to the best of their ability. That being said, I feel the Dept. of Education has been an utter disaster. More govt. intervention has not helped schools. A change is needed

  2. Arod,

    Did you know that after my B/A degree I could join the Army and be part of the OCS program and get paid about $33,941 base pay? Yeah, thats definitely more money then I’ve ever seen awake. Anyways I totally get you. How much money is that for 5 individuals… 169,705. How much of that should be given to fund school considering there are hundreds in the army. I get your picture I think its important to fund schools as well as protection But we could probably protect the country by brain power more efficiently then just muscle power.

  3. It is alarming how much more money is being spent on our national defense than on education. Yet, at the same time it’s always been the case that money goes where it shouldn’t and the real important things somehow get left for last. This is something that will continue to occur. It’s also pretty ironic that less money has been spent on education since the NCLB enactment. So many problems and so little money! The money is what causes the problems…. Although the majority of society does want change and I want to stay positive for change, sometimes it just happens very very slowly.

      I completely agree. Change seems to be happen at a snail’s pace lol…I admire your optimism.


      I did not know that. That further illustrates the point I was trying to make. Thanks!!

  4. Your video was real inspiring. It definitely sheds light on a more real aspect of why actually happens in society which i really sad. It like your going to college for four years, yes, and what are you doing? trying to be something you don’t want to even be? I am really sick of hearing things like the government trying to smuggle god budgets for stupid things and the one that needs at money the most, education is suffering so badly. This seriously needs to change over time. Education is so essential.
