New York spends more money on education than any other city in the country (probably the world) and our schools are absolute ****. Inner city schools are essentially million-dollar day care centers to keep the "students" off the streets. You can throw all the money you want at the problem, but when the culture you're trying to educate is vehemently opposed to learning there comes a point where you're just wasting tax payer money.

It also has more schools than any other city in the country. So that makes sense. And there are bad schools everywhere, and good schools too. And, I wouldn't say our culture isn't opposed to learning. In fact, I'd say that in the past few years the opposite has become true. Being smart is valued more and more. It's just that the structure of school is so tedious and repetitive, and the average attention span of kids and teens is dropping like a brick, so they just lose interest. We don't need more money in schools. We just need to update them to accomodate modern kids.
