Failing Schools?

Ever wonder why this happens? It sems that there isn't enough money in the school districts budget to afford toilet paper. Now that school is in Detroit where they spend over $12,000 per student, less than half of that going towards instruction. Sounds like a problem to me that one can't find enough money in a budget that spends over $10,000 for operating costs.

Well, here is another reason:

Chicago public school bureaucrats skirted competitive bidding rules to buy
30 cappuccino/espresso machines for $67,000, with most of the machines going
unused because the schools they were ordered for had not asked for them,
according to a report by the CPS Office of Inspector General.

I think I figured this out and I don't get paid to even think about it. Stop buying crap, stop paying for unecessary redundant staff and start teaching kids again.
