Charter schools are funded at triple the rate of state schools

When National established its charter schools, it promised that the funding for them would be "broadly similar" to that of state schools. As usual, they were lying. According to information uncovered by the PPTA, they're funded at nearly triple the average rate of state schools:


(Average per student funding in the state school system in 2011 was $6,978).

I guess this is how they plan to make their charter schools as "success": by massively overfunding them. Meanwhile, the state schools ordinary people send their kids to a struggling for cash. And that's what National stands for: screwing you, to give money to its corporate cronies.
