Thank you, Quazi!
I addressed your point. Read it again. 1. I haven't mentioned "endless supply". Therefore to keeping bringing it up is unnecessary. 2. You brought up how spending the "same amount of money appropriately" is just as good as spending increased funds appropriately. However, spending "the same amount of money" as underfunded schools already have helps nothing because they are ... underfunded for what they need to provide.I don't understand this post. Address MY point. NY spends considerably more per student than MA yet is a dismal failure.
Yes, it is, but you need to prove that this is the case with NY and you have not because you have not shown:Jeesh. Bolded phrase above? That's my whole freakin' point. As to ignoring your #3, I ignored it because I don't know whether or not NY just increased its funding....do you?
1. What NY used its money on and how it does not contributes to helping education.
2. That they actually did spend too much money.
3. That their reforms have not worked...(Like I said, it took MA 10-12 years to reap the benefits of their reform - you don't know if NY hasn't worked because it hasn't had a significant amount of time to test).
You keep using NY as an example of how more money doesn't help, but you have yet to show that NY's money has not helped or demonstrate any knowledge of how/when/if NY implemented its reforms. You keep showing large amounts of money and low scores without any point of reference as to when school reform happened and how/how long it is expected to kick in. Using NY is a faulty example no matter what though, because it's based on reforms that have not had enough time to show huge results. It's like giving a cancer patient radiation and trying to see if his cancer is cured the next day. MA reforms took 10-12 years to see results...wait and talk to me about NY then.
And to answer your question: yes I do know the answer, but if you bring it up as evidence to support your claim, you should know too. (I'll give you a hint, the answer doesn't support your claim).
