you forgot *Education Output -17- *Education Efficiency -38-.......for an average of 14......not exactly 1st.
a pdf link from the NEA(National Education Association).....you'll notice NY sits pretty high in all the wrong categories.....#1 in most expenditures per student in education and #1 - #10 in taxes collected.....but remember it's about the kids! http://www.nea.org/home/54597.htm http://www.nea.org/assets/img/content/NEA_Rankings_And_Estimates-2013_(2).pdf
I forgot no such thing.
The critical point being... that in most all cases, you simply get what you pay for.
So, if you're truly serious about putting kids first, then paying what it takes to provide the best possible outcome, shouldn't even be an issue for you... SHOULD IT ?!!!
