So, any time you are told that schools need more money...

Hah. Not to get higher scores they don't.

We do not claim that the school funding system is fundamentally flawed, only that there is no correlation at all between the level of per pupil funding and educational outcomes. —Deloitte


56,000 in 1970 got you what 165,000 gets you today. As a matter of fact, reading scores are exactly what they were in 1970 and were actually higher in the 1990s.

As a matter of face, reading scores are exactly what they were in 1970 and were actually higher in the 1990s.
Well of course, Bill Clinton was president. :rolleyes:

I love the Cato Institute, even if the current design for the website sucks a cock.
