The Chicago Reporter examines the Illinois school system and its funding, dropouts and their effect on the economy and the connection between funding and results. The investigation found that the 2005 range in expenditure per student was $4,000 to $28,000 and poor communities and farms were taxed at higher rates then their wealthier counterparts. School officials asserted that there is a clear connection between funding and quality of student produced, and an analysis by the newspaper bore this out. But a second analysis did not link funding to quality of student.
