21. Yes it is a lack of money
All that additional money is staying at the top and not trickling down to the classrooms.

Teacher pay is also better but still not as good as it needs to be to retain young teachers.

What's different today is the impact of 30 years of bashing public schools. Teachers are not respected, unions are evil and public schools are wasting your tax dollars. It's all part of the meme.
