School Dollars Don’t Buy Three R’s

New York State spends $14,884 per pupil. That amount is 63% more than the national average of $9,138. New York City spends $14,961 per student. These dollar totals mean nothing. Academic results per dollars spent are what counts. Who will make the argument that New York City is getting good value for what it’s paying for? Any takers; beside the Board of Education System?
