How can they give such a crappy education for up to 10000 per student?
I'll give you one worse than that:
There's a village in Alaska with a population of roughly 150 people, 50 of them school aged. They got money from the state (and federal grants) approved to build a K-12 school there.
The money budgeted was $162,000,000.00
You did not misread that. The budget granted was $162 MILLION. That's U.S. Dollars, not Yen or Pesos.
School buildings in rural Alaska last 20-30 years before weather makes them unusable. Figure out that this school will educate around 50 students per year for 30 years. Average out over time that's over $100,000 per student. Since Alaska currently spends around $20,000 per student per year, your government is spending $120,000 per student.
Again - Your tax money pays $120,000 per year for some Alaska students. Tel me that's good use of money.
Governments don’t live together, people live together. With governments you don’t always get a fair word or a fair fight. Well I’ve come here to give you either one - Or get either one from you.
