If the state cuts the ADA (money schools get for student attendance), how will the school pay to transport the student? If the school spends its resources on transporting the other students, how can they properly provide for the continuing students? Why not just blow it up? Clean slate, start over.

jst3p: Can someone summarize TFA? What is an unaccredited school district?


One that has failed so many students for so long that it can no longer be accredited, yet because children must still go to school and nobody has been willing or able to bus them somewhere with an accredited school district it is still in operation. Usually these unaccredited school districts have been taken over by the state and see a series of state guys trying to reform and bring back standards to the school district, but fail year after year for decades.

I'm not sure bussing these kids is going to do anything, but cause other school districts to fail. It is one of the reasons I'm in favor of a new amendment to the US constitutions nationalizing public education. Remove the states, local property and local interests from the dam schools. The only thing they have proven to do is time and again fail the kids. Common core nationally, with per student federal funds and no local taxes. Equalize every public school district.

Ha ha, poor people think there is enough education to go around.  That's almost as cute as thinking that there is enough wealth to go around.

Society is zero sum, people!

Pumpernickel bread: Kind of related...I am getting sick of administrators thinking of universities as businesses that are judged by amount of revenue.  They bleed students for every cent they think they can afford and whenever they come into some financial windfall (e.g. huge endowment), very little of it is actually used to ease the financial burden of the typical student.  Two things have outpaced the rate of inflation the past 30 years.....1) the cost of a college degree and 2) the average salary of senior administrators at colleges and universities.


Salary? The size of the administration has also doubled. Yet students aren't seeing any benefit in increased administration size.
