Schools, dollars and the public trust
from Psychology Today (commentary)
Ulrich Boser, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, writes: "Publically funded institutions don't always spend their dollars in effective ways. Just consider the fact that more than a hundred districts in Texas spend more than $500 per student on sports. One district spent more than a $1,000 per student on athletics — or about the cost of a MacBook Air — even while their students performed below average on reading and math tests."
