Government Hides True Cost of Public Education - Vid

It is impossible to have a public debate about education policy if government operated public schools lie about their spending.

This is just one more example of how Government screws up everything it controls.
The actual tax payers dollars being spent per pupil could send our children to private schools and most likely they would get a better education.

Cato Education Analyst Adam B. Schaeffer explains that the nations five largest metro areas and the District of Columbia are blurring the numbers on education costs. On average, per-pupil spending in these areas is 44 percent higher than officially reported. Districts on average spent nearly $18,000 per student and yet claimed to spend just $12,500 last year.
