"...which the US governement prefers to finance over the education system "
Can you actually support this or is this just a personal opinion?
Are you aware of how much money the Departments of Education spend on students in the various school districts around the USA?
Do you know the determining factors for the per student $ amount in each district?
Also, I think it might be wise to remember that you are comparing 2 different systems here ......
These are two separate entities. While they might serve the same demographic, there is a very separate mandate for each one.
