If you were in the position to make a presentation to the leaders of the country, what new thing (something never tried before) would you propose to reduce spending?

One thing I would do is try to make our public schools more cost effective by finding ways for it's extracurricular activities take in more revenue.

It's no surprise that public schools take care of their athletes. It's because the ticket sales for all those football games and basketball games, along with concession sales, helps bring in revenue for schools.

However, what if public schools put on plays or band performances the way sports teams play games? If we had schools put on more artistic performances on a regular basis, then we would have more drama and music departments for more schools.

The same goes for writing. Have public schools publish a monthly journal or blog with fiction written by students, and have the sales of those journals or the money from ad revenue go to the school.

This way public high schools will be more competitive in artistic and academic endeavors and not just athletic games.
