Fact No. 1: The United States is rated 15th to 17th in the world on educating our children.
Fact No. 2: Alabama, depending on which study you read, is 47th to 48th in the United States on educating our children.
Fact No. 3: We spend more money per child in the United States to educate our children than other nations.
After looking at these facts to continue down this road is insane. Why not give every child in Alabama the opportunity for a good education, regardless of their sociology-economic status or their zip code. That is where compassion enters the equation. Always keep the main thing the main thing, educating all our children.
