182. Public schools are primarily a county or city issue, not necessarily a state or federal issue.
Edited on Wed Jan-26-11 10:18 PM by Selatius
In countries with a more unitary form of government--France is a good example--the standards are uniform across the board no matter the location. What they've achieved, essentially, is economies of scale. By pooling everybody's resources into a single fund, it makes it far easier to spread out resources to make everything roughly equal in terms of quality and delivery of services. This isn't the case if you have multiple pools the size of counties and cities. You can't achieve the same level of uniformity that way; it's not possible and never was with this system even at its best because there will always be poor counties and poor city municipalities.
