Like just about everything our government is involved in, there's a terrible amount of waste, but considerable care needs to be taken in cutting funding. If you're going to cut funding to our troops in Afghanistan (where they have been dying in record numbers in the last couple of years,) then you might as well bring them home. We have a hundred thousand civilian contractors in Iraq, if I'm not mistaken. I'd like to cut our foreign military bases in half, but with Iran and North Korea working on nukes, we need more spending on a missile defense shield. Overall I see room to cut, but with a scalpel, not a hatchet.

Worth noting that South Korea's students perform much higher than ours, with half the budget.
