Throwing Money at Education Is Useless

The science is settled! From the Daily Mail:
The costs of sending students through school have more than tripled in real terms over the past 40 years, yet despite the billions of extra taxpayers dollars being spent, the results students are achieving show almost no improvement. 
Andrew Coulson who conducted the study believes the answer is simple - that there's no discernible correlation between spending and results. 
'What we’ve done over the past 40 years hasn’t worked,' said Coulson, director of the Center For Educational Freedom at the CATO Institute. 
'The average performance change nationwide has declined 3 percent in mathematical and verbal skills. Moreover, there’s been no relationship, effectively, between spending and academic outcomes.'
Actually, this is pretty the same for any leftist program.
