Should school funding be based on academic achievement: Do schools with higher achieving students need more money?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • Schools with low performing students need more money.



    I believe that it is a good idea for school funding to be
    based on academic achievement. But, I believe
    that the experts have it backwards. Schools
    with low performing students need more money than schools with the highest achieving
    students. It should be like the NFL
    draft. You help out the worst performing
    team.


  • No, because there is too much cheating.

    No, school funding should not be based on academic achievement, because schools and teachers under pressure to get good scores have been known to cheat in the past. This is unfair to the schools that are not cheating, that have to compete with cheating schools for funding. A voucher system would be a better way to allow market forces to improve education.
