With the latest tax reform bill now passed I thought it would interesting to see what some of our tax money and 20 trillion dollar debt is buying
Baltimore city schools are number 3 on the list nationwide for receiving the most federal money for schools,and number 1 on list in Maryland for
receiving the most state and federal money of any school district in the state.
what have tax payers received in exchange for all that tax money and borrowed money that has been funneled into the Baltimore city schools, well lets
take a look.
Six Baltimore City schools were found to have not a single student who scored proficient in math or reading in 2016.
in 2017 only 14 students out of almost 4,000 who took the test scored proficient in math.
Baltimore spends roughly $1.4 billion annually on education, or roughly $16,000 per student.
reading proficiency rates among Baltimore High School graduates hover at around 11 percent, and math proficiency rates hover around 12 percent. This
is in a school system that graduates roughly 70 percent of its students each year.
this is just one city out of many in the U.S. , but I`m sure the stats for other large U.S. cities are just as dismal.
paying taxes so that disabled veterans are taken care of isn`t a crime but paying taxes so that 1.4 billion annually can be spent in baltimore so
that only %12 percent of the students who graduate are proficient is a crime.
