Education system has adequate funding in Alaska

The Alaska school system spends millions of dollars in taxpayer money annually on, non-classroom instruction, such as, football, soccer, baseball, tennis, swimming, and hockey, etc., as well as huge outputs for sport equipment, coaches and their staffs. These non-classroom activities should be paid for by the private sector such as Pop Warner football, Little League baseball, community soccer leagues, tennis clubs, etc., not by the tax payers in our communities.

Until we get our priorities in order there will never be enough educational funds for our schools, especially, in regard to the majority of students who are not athletically inclined and have no wish to be groomed, athletically, for college or professional sports associations in the future. Put our tax money into classroom instruction not toward a minority of students whose moms and dads dream of Olympic gold, or Super Bowl victories for the chosen few.
