Actually, the correlation between educational achievement and funding is inverse.
The more money we give to teachers, the worse job they do. So typical of government agencies.

The unions always support the Democrats so they can get more money to waste.
The Left makes everything worse that they touch. Look at the schools. - Dennis Prager, November, 2018
