Recently, we published a story that analyzed the effects of the dramatic enrollment swings that have taken place in Pennsylvania school districts over the past 25 years. The interactive graphic above was included in that piece, but it's worth noting as a tool in and of itself. The graphic is sharable, downloadable and able to view in full-screen.
The first tile in the graphic allows users to see the clear correlation between enrollment change and per-pupil state basic education funding. In general, because of the state's "hold harmless" policy, the more students a district lost, the better its rank in per-pupil state funding. Using the sliders on the right you can see how correlations change based on race and level of funding.
Six millionaires/billionaires contributed $1,482,604 to privatize democratically-governed Pennsylvania public education.
LONDON (The Borowitz Report)—In an unexpected televised address on Saturday, Queen Elizabeth II offered to restore British rule over the United States of America. Addressing the American people from her office in Buckingham Palace, the Queen said that she was making the offer “in recognition of the desperate situation you now find yourselves in.” “This two-hundred-and-forty-year experiment in self-rule began with the best of intentions, but I think we can all agree that it didn’t end well,” she said.
