My next question is: How is that $19,272.40 per student further divided? How much goes to supplies and basic teaching aids? How much is teacher salary? How much is administrative costs? I could go on and on, but you get the picture.
For those students who do graduate, that is over $250,000.00 per student. Extend that out; if you have 2 children, the citizens of this community spend half a million dollars to educate your children. I DO NOT begrudge our youth a good education, BUT, are they getting a quarter million dollar education?
These numbers are unbelievable.
Again, I appreciate the concern of an assembly member. We as tax paying citizens should all be concerned.
