Baltimore wants more money

The progressive way. Reward failure by taxing success. Double down on stupid.

 

snip-

Political leaders and activists in Baltimore are using the city’s recent riots as an opportunity to demand more state funding for the city’s school system and after-school programs.

At two different events on Monday, activists and politicians directly cited the riots as showcasing the need to funnel more money towards educational efforts in Baltimore, The Baltimore Sun reports. Activists want Hogan to direct about $68 million in funds he hoped to allocate for other state needs back to education. About $11 million of that money would go to Baltimore.

 

snip-

But Baltimore’s schools already receive far more money than the average American school. On average, U.S. schools spend $10,658 per pupil, but Baltimore City’s public schools spend $17,329– nearly 70 percent more. As noted by The Washington Times, that’s almost identical to the spending rate at public schools in Montgomery County, Maryland, where student achievement levels are far above Baltimore’s. On average, the Times notes, Maryland taxpayers spend $14,123 per student– or 18.5 percent less than the average Baltimore student.

Despite their high spending, however, Baltimore’s schools don’t do particularly well. Their 73.5 percent high school graduation rate is far behind Maryland’s 87.5 percent average, and their average SAT score of 1126 out of 2400 is far below both state and national averages. The average Maryland student, meanwhile, costs taxpayers $14,123 per student– or 18.5 percent less than the average Baltimore student.

Re: Baltimore wants more money

There`s a Baltimore "preacher" that laments Baltimore didn`t have "more stores to burn" during the rioting ...poor CVS drug stores.   This is probably not what store chain would want to hear before moving there.
