It's no secret KAL. The USA outspends practically everyone when it comes to education. I wonder what % of that money goes directly to administrative costs though?
Unless I am wrong I think we do outspend everyone, maybe the UAE has us beat? I know they pay for everyone to study abroad if they want...right? I'm not sure...but per student we are way ahead.
Define administrative, because in NYC security and special ed, and supplies(!) fell under that....it's a complete exercise in nonsense.
Even the text books are an exercise in cronyism...contracts are awarded to those the party and the union approve of.
But the glaring issue I have is the curriculum. I don't want ideology taught in public school...stick to what is fact and what is needed to get them ready for life. You just answered a constitutional question that very few get correct...you would think what is taught about our government would start with the constitution, the basics of what each branch of government does, what their rights are....nope. They are given a partisan education...it's no secret the left is awarding the better contracts....and by left I mean even big city republicans because they need to lean left to run a city.
These kids are taught how to vote...
How I got rich can be taught to kids...at least if nothing else it would give them a grasp of personal finance...those are "special" classes though.
What was your curriculum? Would you say it was biased? Or was it practical and objective? Were you all expected to know your charter?
