Hey Feds,

Just quit the taxes, and let the people finanace the schools.

This is a situation where many or perhaps the majority of the students are native americans living on reservations. There isn't much money that would come from "local control" or "local pockets." I believe what the government has done to the indigenous population is shameful. Restore the funding and double it, it's the least the government can do.
