Should school funding be based on academic achievement: Should the government give more funding to schools with higher academically achieving students?

Should school funding be based on academic achievement: Should the government give more funding to schools with higher academically achieving students?
  • No responses have been submitted.
  • No they shouldn't.

    The government should not give more funding to schools with higher academically achieving students. This is because these students are already doing well with the funding they receive. The schools that are not doing well academically are the ones that should receive more funding. Perhaps they would do better if they could buy new books, computers, etc....

  • Low-performing schools would get left behind

    If the government gives more money to schools that perform the best (assuming those schools perform best because they had access to the best resources to begin with) they'll be setting up a self-sustaining system of economic privilege and inequality. Poor schools with bad performance will continue to deteriorate as their funding is cut, and high-performing schools will get wealthier and more competitive. This stratification could disadvantage kids for life based on what school district they grow up in.
