"Would an Extra $27 Billion Improve CA Public School Performance?" ...an op-ed in today’s Orange County Register [explains] that’s not a theoretical question. After adjusting for inflation and enrollment growth, CA spent $27 billion more on K-12 public schooling in 2010 than it did when Jerry Brown was first elected governor back in 1974. SAT scores fell over that period (see chart below).
...And if a $27 billion spending boost was associated with a decline in SAT scores, why would anyone expect Governor Brown’s proposal to raise another $7 billion in education taxes to do any good?
Say, I've got an idea for you hardworking California taxpayers: keep electing Democrats to office who are completely beholden to public sector unions and whose allegiance lies with illegal immigrants. That way, you'll keep paying more and more money for fewer and fewer services. At least until the state melts down in a cauldron of civil unrest.
That's the Democrat way.
