SAT Scores on the Decline
Posted by Print

According to the WSJ, SAT scores dropped this year.  From the story:

“Many observers Tuesday viewed the flat results of recent years as discouraging in light of a more than 25-year effort to improve U.S. education. ‘This is a nearly unrelenting tale of woe and disappointment,’ said Chester E. Finn Jr., president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, a Washington, D.C., think tank. ‘If there’s any good news here, I can’t find it.'”

Perhaps that’s because there is absolutely no correlation between spending more money on public education and output.  The public school system, like any other monopoly, operates at a high cost and typically produces mediocre results.
