Words of Wisdom

"Per-pupil federal education spending has skyrocketed to nearly three times its 1970 level, according to data compiled by Andrew Coulson of the Cato Institute.  What has this massive inflow of new resources bought us?  A sizable increase in our school systems' employment rolls- but no detectable increase in our children's test scores in reading, science, or math." 

--Arthur Brooks from "The Conservative Heart"
