A fresh look at K-12 spending


Most of us have some sense of what our states are putting into K-12 education, but it's easy to miss the enormity of that contribution when you're looking at raw numbers. That's why I felt such a visceral jolt when I saw the following graphic in the Sunday edition of The Charlotte Observer:



K-12 spending makes up $7.8 billion of our annual $21.3 billion state budget - a budget that's now expected to see cuts of $2 billion. Looking at the graphic above, where do you think we'll see those cuts?

10 Comments:

  • Brett -- And how effective are North Carolina's schools? Charlotte's have been declining over the years when they use to be very good. I bet there are tons of ineffective programs both in K-12 and higher ed that could easily be eliminated. I also bet there are plenty of ineffective and redundant positions that could be eliminated. This would hold true for education in any state.

    Yes, education should be hit hard with the cuts. Tennessee is trying to avoid cuts in its education spending. Yet, from a good business sense why is this not the time to do what I just suggested above? Why does everyone think education needs more spending. That is throwing good money after bad.

  • Government-Backed Loans - Government advances allude to those advances that are ensured by one of two elected offices. The two sorts of government credits are: Federal Housing Administration (FHA) advances, and Veterans Administration (VA) advances. The benefit of financing utilizing FHA advances are that they are less demanding to meet all requirements for and permit a borrower to back a greater amount of the credit sum than non-government advances. While with a Conforming credit a borrower might just have the capacity to back 80% of the advance sum, a FHA advance permits a borrower to fund 97% of the advance sum. FHA advances are prescribed for those borrowers who are first-time purchasers, have minimal expenditure to put down, have a short record as a consumer, or are experiencing difficulty meeting all requirements for a Conforming advance. The two principle focal points of financing utilizing VA advances are that the VA permits borrowers to back 100% of the credit sum, and that, the VA just obliges verification of veteran status to meet all requirements for the advance. The main disadvantage to government advances is that home loan protection is needed at all credit to values (LTV), not at all like Conventional and Jumbo advances where installment of home loan protection is controlled by the measure of value a borrower has in his home. car title loans chicago
