Who decided you don't got enough to teach children?
State spending billions, on stadiums and prisons
Ali wonders why the government puts more money into stadiums and prisons rather than education. He is talking about how the Twin Cities, in particular the city of Minneapolis and how they have been making budget cuts from education. At the same time, they turned around and helped build TCF Stadium for the Minnesota Gophers, they funded a brand new Minnesota Twins stadium in 2008, and they build larger prisons. This money could have been used to fix one of the major roots of crime which is education level.
