Chandler: Gimme A Big Ed Pork Sammich

Rep. Ben Chandler (D-Versailles) misses the point of the effort to improve public education in America. He has filed a bill in Washington to spend an additional $32 Billion -- at least -- over five years to improve school BUILDINGS.

We already pay local and state taxes to maintain school facilities. Chandler wants to ding us at the federal level too.

Also part of his education "plan" is hiring gobs of computer technicians for the schools and "essential broadband access."

Good grief.

Big Education spends way too much on administration to start talking about opening new money spigots.
