This is a new twist on an age old problem. Once again, dedicating the lottery to education (but this time to classroom education) -- and then prohibiting the lottery from bragging that they are helping schools.

Well, it's what they promised when we voted to pass the lottery.

This is not necessary and a waste of time.
