Cut Teach for America funding and we'll be closer to flunking the future

I am not one who equates dollars spent with educational excellence. (I once had a child in Washington's public schools - a teachable moment, if there ever was one.) But no one can deny the worth of such programs as Teach for America or the fact that, even in education, you get what you pay for. If, in fact, the recurring news that our kids are dumber, lazier, stupider - I'm trying to be politically correct - than kids in other advanced nations is ever going to be rectified, it will not be done on the cheap.
