This is democrat education, this is liberal indoctrination in lieu of teaching actual life skills like reading

The public elementary and secondary schools in the District of Columbia spent $30,115 per pupil during the 2016-2017 school year, according to Table 236.75 in the Department of Education's "Digest of Education Statistics."

But only 23% of the eighth graders in the D.C. public schools were proficient or better in reading in 2019, according to the department's National Assessment of Educational Progress, or NAEP, tests.



Similarly, only 23% of eighth graders in the district's public schools were proficient or better in mathematics.

Clearly, the government-run schools in our nation's capital did not give taxpayers their money's worth.


Yet, the District of Columbia was not the only jurisdiction where public schools cost taxpayers significant money and gave little in return.
