Makes Perfect Sense
Let's see, hundreds upon hundreds of millions of additional dollars invested in education over the last few years, and the result is subpar student performance and in some cases an actual decline.

I was born a New Yorker and have lived in more places than I can count on one hand. My wanderings included a total of more than two years in Ecuador and nine years in California. The latter being significant as that is where I met the love of my life. Of course, she determined that our progeny would be the tenth generation of her family to be raised in New Mexico. So, this is where my roots will grow long.
