Description

"In New Jersey's court-ordered experiment to improve education for more than 300,000 students in the state's poorest school districs, taxpayers are learning an expensive lesson: Spending more money does not necessarily produce smarter kids." New Jersey has spent almost $27 million in the last decade to raise public school funding, but the extra money has not had an effect on standardized tests in middle schools and high schools. This series of articles examines how the money is spent, why there is no apparent difference and how people feel about so much of their tax money being spent on a program with no results.
