Of Course Money Doesn't Matter in Education

Forget the fact that:

Oakland Public Schools spend                           $4,945     per student, and
Secular Private Schools spend on average         $20,100   per student, and
California spends                                            $224,712    per child in juvenile detention.

Nothing to see here.  Move along.... move along...

(Oakland Public Schools and California Juvenile Detention numbers from Harper's Index, November 2010;  Secular Private Schools average a Washington Post article, "Per Student Spending Gaps Wider Thank Know, August 2009)
