    Probably not. I’ve never actually heard of a school district that was poor, at least not in the last 30 years. It’s always an excuse for spending money on non-RRR things like sports.
    .
    Oregon spends 75% of it’s combined state, county, city, and district budgets on K-12 and still manages to lack a lot of basic things despite more than $11,000 per student. The waste of funds is incredible. Like most states, one half of the K-12 total budgets goes to sports.

    Oregon spends 75% of it’s combined state, county, city, and district budgets on K-12 (…)
     
    That’s totally ridiculous. Outrageous claims require strong evidence and you as usual provided none. The real number is in fact 10% if you include all sources of funding (38% if you don’t but that’s not what you claim) (page A-13, details starting on B-2). Now, you may claim that doesn’t include local budgets (I believe it does), but then those local budgets would have to be 2.6 times bigger than the total state budget from all sources and that’s totally outrageous.
     
    (…) despite more than $11,000 per student.
     
    That is probably true, and it is in line with data from recent years for all states. No surprise there.
     
    So let’s approach it from the other side. According to the budget document I linked above, the total state expenditures were $55.28 billion. 75% of that is $41.46 billion. That’s what you claim is spent on K-12 students. At $11,000 per student, Oregon would have 3.77 million students in K-12, which is ridiculous since the total state population is around 3.90 million.
     
    If you want to regain any of the credibility you have lost here you need to stop making outrageous claims that are easy to debunk.

    At a 2:1 student-teacher ratio, spartan classrooms don’t matter!

    Ah, English! Such a precise and imprecise language at once.

    I don’t know what your definition of poor is, but the local school district is on the verge of going bankrupt, and being taken over by the state.

    Since Nab is a Pseudo-scientist it’s not surprising he uses pseudo-facts is it? That he likes to make stuff up has been obvious for a long time.

    @Redkaycei Repoc

    Yes, but unfortunately there are always new people here who may not be aware of @Nabu’s horrendous track with presenting made-up facts.
     
    Some of them may in fact be mislead into believing him, particularly since he always uses that fake authoritative tone in his posts.
