Obama, Who Ended D.C.’s Voucher Program, Talks About Improving Education for Children ‘Born in the Wrong Neighborhood’

The Education Department’s 2008 Digest of Education Statistics shows that for the 2005-2006 school year, $18,339 was spent per pupil per year for average daily attendance in the D.C. public schools – more than double what it costs for a child to attend a private school through the Opportunity Scholarship Program.

Despite that spending, the public schools in the District are consistently ranked as some of the worst performing schools in the nation.

In Obama-land, protecting the teachers unions comes before providing children with a good education, don't cha know.
