California Voters Willing to Make a Bad Deal

This paragraph concerns me:
A majority of voters would be willing to pay more taxes if it meant schools could get more money, according to a poll released Saturday.
If there's one things that's been proven beyond doubt in California it's that more money for schools does not equal better schools. If such a law was passed the only thing we could guarantee is higher taxes and more union perks. There's no guarantee that the additional funds would improve schools one iota.

Rather than strip taxpayers of more money, it's time to strip the school districts of useless administrators, end programs that add nothing to society (like sex education or homosexual studies, which are both required by law), end union contracts that promise far more than can possibly be delivered, and refocus schools on the important skills that will make for better job opportunities and better people.

That's how you fix education.

Day-after-day Democrats conduct polling to find the answer to “A majority of voters would be willing to pay more taxes if...”?

Whenever they find an answer to that question they put it up for a popular vote. After a year or so of collecting money for what the voters intended, a bill is quietly passed that re-allocates the additional revenue to the 'general fund' -what Democrats wanted in the first place.
