    Q1 "We should Inject more resources into education system"

    Is the phrase "inject into" rightly used ??



    Q2 "More

    Is there any thing wrong in the sentence structure??

    It's commonly used by the bureaucracy. I wouldn't write it. Apparently it's an analogy from medicine - a resource injection will heal the problem. I'm sure there are better verbs to use.

    It looks OK.

    Thanks so much!!
