that is not the point , education has an immediate effect it also has a long term effect . anyone who says that education does not have an immediatede effect is taking bull shit .
Education is all important, but even more importnt is how we educate., the poor quality of politicians and civil servants is a result pertly of poor education, and not bothering to educate all members of society, you will not get the best results if you only educate those who can afford to pay for university education.   
    people who are not taught to think ahead, to anitcipate and solve problems, will not make the best polticians or civil servants, the consequence of this for society is that we lose the innovators the problem solvers and Consequentially society will be poorer, we need
those who challenge the established. order a case in point was Galileo.

which brings us to immediate pressing problems that need to be solved... a pandemic. a pandemic that might recur.
The usa should be spending the money it has spent on this folly on redesigning and altering government buildings schools hospitals so that they are custom built to design with covid 19 that is the pressing priority, it also is keynsian economics, and will boost the economy while saving lives
