: : SDF: California, the least-spending of American public school systems, also has the worst scores. There's your link for you.

: Garloo: Are they spending more today, proportianally, than in the past when the scores were higher.

SDF: Nope, they're spending LESS.

: My guess is that they are. I don't know. Additionally, I was asking for a link betweem increased spending and higher scores. You failed to provide that.

SDF: If they spend more than they do in California, they'll have higher test scores.

: : SDF: The track record of voucher systems is that they make both private and public schools worse, as substantiated in a Martin Carnoy article I cited here. Never mind that the above propaganda is a mere echo of the union-busting rhetoric of George HW Bush and his Republican Party stooges...

: Garloo: And that reactionary Bill Bradley who supported vouchers until pressure made him reverse his position. Yeah, I saw that myself in one of his first debates with Al Gore. I'll check your resource on tax credits and get back to with some evidence of my own.

SDF: Bradley IS a reactionary; he, after all, supported the Contras.
