Hoover Institution senior fellow Thomas Sowell weighed in on what he sees as a trend across the United States to stop the growth of charter schools.
“There is very little correlation between the amount of money that you spend and the kind of education that comes out of the other end. I think most people don’t realize that charter school students don’t get the same amount of money per student as the traditional public school student does,” the author of “Charter Schools and Their Enemies” told “The Mark Levin Show” on Monday.
“More than that, if the [public school] is really failing so badly that it is just a public scandal, they will then pour more money into it. That enables the politician to say that he is really concerned about this because he has appropriated ‘X’ number of millions or billions of dollars towards that school. Of course, the money usually does nothing more than have a more expensive failure,” Sowell said. MORE
