Response: Total expenditures for public elementary and secondary schools in the United States were $870 billion in 2019–20 (in constant 2021–22 dollars). This amounts to an average of $17,013 per public school pupil enrolled in the fall of that school year.
And do you understand the concept of averages? And that terrible, shitty states like Alabama ( $10,108 per pupil) and Mississippi (FY2021, the per-student base amount was $5,829) murder the national average? And do you think that we need to COSTCO education and that cheaper means better?
Might moving a kid from a public school to home tutoring assisted by a tutor have a lower cost and result in a better-educated student?
While forgetting that schooling provides more than academic education but socialization for students?
