  1. That amounts to a 97% increase in spending and a 4% decrease in enrollment. So how much have schools improved?

    I suspect if asked, the answer would be that we are improving but we can’t measure that because “our evaluation process has changed.”

    I (being a conspiracy nut) have always suspected that the change in evaluation was to do precisely that; make it impossible to track performance over a substantial period. I can hardly put in words how liberating it felt when my third kid graduated. Now I’m just am armchair quarterback all I have invested now is money, and lots of it.
