NC Spends $150K per High School Diploma. Are We Getting Our Money’s Worth?

A new study from the Civitas Institute shows how fundamentally flawed our concepts of what is important in education are. I don’t understand why spending more money is always viewed as the answer. We are close to an election, so there are a ton of political ads on the air, many of which focus on the fact that we aren’t spending enough on education. Eleven thousand dollars per year per student isn’t enough? How much would be enough? How much do we have to spend per student to finally have a conversation about methods instead of lack of funding?
