“Community involvement … in education, politics, business, etc. People really don’t seem to care or feel that their involvement matters.”

"The educational spending, or lack thereof."

Give me a break, Erica. I know you're young but you have much to learn. The schools just approved $13k for speakers at the football field. They spent $162k on Apple computers (overpriced by 40% compared to Windows equivalents and the PC of choice in 99% of all businesses in the world, thank you). The wanton waste of dollars in Education is epidemic yet everyone wants to complain about the lack of money.

My tax statement each December and May tells a different story of how much money is being extracted from my wallet and given to schools. Perhaps you have yet to see said tax statements?

I am with jason2007 on this. Education is of the utmost importance, but a prime example of the waste is choosing Apple computers. Contrary to popular belief they are not less susceptible to malware. We are teaching our kids to use technology that far less than 10% of the business world relies upon for its work. It is overly priced to purchase and maintain and doing them a disservice when they get to college.
