Politicians do the bidding of corporations and it's not in most corporations' interests to bolster schools. Education policy would change overnight if CEOs gave a damn.

In the meantime, we parents have become crack fundraisers, deploying every tool in the book to keep schools afloat. The largest portion of our PTO budget this year went to retaining a few hours for the librarian, school psychologist, classroom aides, etc... not increasing the hours over previous years, just reducing the impact of the annual cuts. In California they are indeed annual cuts and have been for many years now.

I wonder at what point the entire system will collapse.

I wish it would collapse just to force Americans to deal with the problem.
