This is a story/survey from 1991 which basically said Philadelphia Schools had some of the highest costs in the NATION.
So almost 1/4 century later, billions of dollars and numerous political and leadership changes what has really changed in the Philadelphia School System. It's the same old stuff.
Perhaps Philadelphia should be asking more money for social programs rather than trying to shove their social welfare programs into their public school system. If they need more police or welfare workers ask for them but do not ask for them via support staff in a public school budget.
There are districts out there spending less per pupil with much better results. Perhaps that's because they spend more money in other areas which still have an affect on students.
