Cato Institute: Public School Funding Has Tripled Since 1970. Scores Are The Same In All Subjects


I'm Team Piggy!
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.

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