Many states, including mine, insure that every school gets the same amount of money per student. The rub comes with the PTAs of affluent schools raising tens of thousands of dollars that PTAs in poor schools are unable to do.

I painted bake windows on panels and installed them on this Irish Pub.
Depicted in the windows were singers, drinkers, dart throwing, and a poet. I'd say I covered Ireland pretty well.
The inside of the bar was wallpapered with customers' donated one-dollar bills.
When he sold the bar and removed the bills he learned that to redeem them they would have to be sent to the government to have them verified. He opted to allow me to make art out of them.
I filled an old briefcase with bags of the stuff...
And after folding and securing them in a small plastic bag I arranged them in a pre-existing box I had made years prior.
Here's what each bill looks like.
Now I want to remind you of another story. I was in a bar and had too many beers. When I got in my truck and attempted to drive off the ladder rack on my truck caught on a sidewalk tree and knocked it completely over.
This is that every tree when it was first planted. When I destroyed it, it was three times that big.
I have eaten hundreds of meals at one of those tables. I would also sit there and watch pedestrians stoop and pick up fake hundred-dollar bills that it had strategically placed in my line of sight.
BTW The middle window depicts a customer with an upturned glass but what is difficult to see is that he's staring wide-eyed at the waitress' cleavage.
