110 * $569,000 (http://www.navy.mil/navydata/fact_display.asp?cid=2200&tid=1300&ct=2)

=

62,590,000

Enough Cash to educate 6233 students (thus employing 201 teachers, 4 or more principals, 10 maintenence persons, 2 or more nurses, 4 or more cafeteria staff plus school supplies plus buildings, plus increased tax revenue for a “school area”

Or expending 110 missles in mere moments, easy tradeoff?
