I saw this today as a friend's status update on Facebook, and I think its a great idea. It may be the only way to make sure that education is properly funded the way it needs to/should be.
We should make it a requirement for elected officials to have either a.) attended public school or my personal preference b.) have a child enrolled in public school, in the district you are running for.
I think that overall the world would be a better place if these elected officals saw what we had to deal with on a daily basis, and maybe they would care a bit more about the money that they are taking away from the children in their district!
