In the course of a public K-12 education, how much money will be invested in the average California student? How much does a basic, public K-12 education actually cost?
Do you know? Can you guess?
I will answer the question in a moment. But first, I want to help you feel as uncomfortable as possible about the fact that you don’t know. Because I bet you don’t, and I think you should. After all, you are a voter and a taxpayer, and also the kind of person who cares about education, right? You may even think (as I do) that we should be willing to spend more, particularly in California.
