Adequate Education Funding?

Now that the education establishment is lobbying for higher taxes, the pleas for “adequate” education funding are pouring forth. Recently, Sharon Morgan of the National Education Association New Mexico argued that point on the pages of the Albuquerque Journal.
The problem is that among the platitudes and discussion of schools as “community hubs,” Morgan makes absolutely no arguments to support more education spending. After all, what exactly is “adequate?” How much spending do proponents believe will ensure that our children receive an excellent education? The fact is that our current education is a bottomless pit in need of unlimited taxpayer money because there few incentives for schools to improve and compete to serve children.
