Idea

Return lottery ticket sales proceeds to neighborhoods
Return some portion of the Minnesota Lottery Ticket sales to the neighborhoods where the tickets are purchased.

I think the whole concept of state-sponsored gambling is ridiculous and whatever money it generates for schools will be offset by funding cuts of another kind. However returning money to neighborhood schools could empower a struggling community which is quite worthwhile in and of itself.
