I am really confused by your response. You are the one advocating that the problem is lack of resources "money". So, two posters show you that schools are well funded and you respond as above. I don't get it. Think about the amount of money going towards one classroom of 25 kids in Baltimore. About 387,500 dollars per classroom to educate kids for 180 - 185 school days. That is about 2,095 dollars per day. Granted, the costs cover more than just the classroom for those days of education, but you can see that enormous sums of money is going to the district. The resources are allocated. This same district will complain they have limited text books and actual resources for children. More resources to school systems doesn't do a darn thing except cost the tax payers more. If a district won't clean up its act, why should kids have to stay in dysfunctional systems?
