First, here is the title: Wider Gaps in Student Spending.
Then, it was followed up with the first paragraph:
Private schools without religious affiliation spend almost twice as much per student as their public and Catholic counterparts and more than double that of other Christian schools nationwide, according to a new study.
So, tell me what is news about this? And since the article is intended to target vouchers by saying these schools are outside of the reach for vouchers, why didn't they mention that most students who attend non-public schools, now, attend RELIGIOUS AFFILIATED schools?
Look at this part of the article:
The secular private schools analyzed in the study spent $20,100 on each student in the 2007-08 school year vs. $10,100 in public schools. Nonparochial Catholic schools tended to spend roughly the same as public schools. (Parochial schools were not included in the study because their tax data are not publicly available and because their finances are so tied to those of the Catholic Church.) Members of two of the largest associations of Christian schools spent $7,100 -- several thousand dollars less per student than their public peers.
That article is a bunch of crap. It's trying to target voucher use based on the outliers than that of the norm.
