Public school districts across the nation are dead broke or headed that way in a hurry. We can naturally assume the ones in the worst position are districts in cities controlled by democrats. We’d be right to assume this.
What the cause is should also come as no surprise to anyone – I mean, except for other democrats who always fixate on infrastructure. US News reported back in March that Hillary suggested the “Department of Education reinstate a federal program to assist states and districts with funding to repair and modernize schools.”
Truth be told, democrats like Hillary may be corrupt liars, but they are not stupid. They know full well what the problem is, but won’t and can’t broach the subject – not if they want to be elected or maintain the office they currently hold.
“Chicago, the city school district – the third-largest in the country – is a whopping $1.1 billion in debt. Already laying off staff and imposing unpaid furlough days, it most recently told principals to stop spending money altogether,” write US News. Chicago has been under democrat control for 84 years.
