Education war heating up in Sacramento

STATE CAPITOL, Sacramento - The newspapers have been full of photos like this of protestors at the state capitol, angry over Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's broken promise - a promise of about $2 billion in funds for schools.

Last year the schools said he could use the money to help balance the budget - provided he paid it back.

This year he said he changed his mind and wasn't going to give it back.

He's learning how to be a politician very quickly.

But while he has been able to kick around a lot of people (most recently immigrants), when you start fooling around with the future of people's kids, the cuckoo comes out of most heads very quickly.

Are we paying too much for education? How much is too much?
