Money for war, not for teachers, in the USA

This video from the USA says about itself:

The war in Libya shows the US has no shortage of money, but policy-makers’ priorities are not the same as the peoples, Derrick Crowe of the Brave New Foundation says.The first day of the war in Libya cost the US at least $100 million, Crowe said and yet Americans have to bear the burden of draconian cuts to basic services, teachers, and police. ‘We have plenty of money for wars, we just don’t have anything to educate our children,’ Crowe notes.

Alejandro Garcia, Center for American Progress: “Latinos are becoming a national presence and will represent a crucial segment of our nation’s future workforce. They accounted for more than half of the nation’s growth from 2000 to 2010 and will be a third of the overall population by 2050. Latino children currently make up more than one in five children in the United States. They are the youngest and fastest growing population in the nation. Yet Latinos are disproportionately affected by high rates of hunger and are experiencing record rates of childhood obesity”: here.
