State of Education

Everybody knows that the state of education in the US is pretty terrible.  I mean, we're the richest county in the world, and somehow we can't figure out how to not default on our loans and we're only ranked 25th in the world for our math education.  This instance (where teachers aren't unionized and have no control over this) shocks and appalls me.  How is this supposed to help anything?  http://www.wmctv.com/story/15111127/2011-2012-school-year-indefinitely-delayed-by-memphis-city-schools-board

What do you guys think of this?  One of my friends is personally affected by this and says she will be living (on a diet of ramen noodles and anxiety) until this is taken care of.  Note: the school district did not notify teachers that they would be indefinitely without pay before this hit the press.
