Mowing Down Education and the deficit

I stopped mowing my own yard and started paying a neighbor kid.  He didn’t do it quite right, so I paid him more money.  He still didn’t do it right, so I paid him more.  The more I paid, the worse it got.  Should I keep paying him more $ until he gets it right.   Of course not, so why do we do this with education.  Why do we take this approach w/ government in general, but not in our own lives.  What do you think

I heard that school hours in Japan are much longer than here in the US. I think that the state of education is probably a reflection of the state of our culture than it is anything.
