Public spending on education

As you may have guessed from my previous blog post, I am not a huge fan of Governor Rick Perry. Still, in fairness, articles like this grossly overestimate the role of school funding in school quality. If the link were what it is popularly supposed to be, America's schools would be at or near the top among the OECD countries, and the District of Columbia (an example that advocates of throwing money at the problem love to hate) would be at or near the top in America.
