We thus, once we’ve got reasonable amounts of money going into such a system, got to focus rather more on the efficiency with which it is being spent rather than just crying out for ever more cash to be shoveled into it. That is, Senator Sanders, could we have a little more thought about why Baltimore cannot produce at least a simulacrum of a reasonable education system on 50% more money per pupil than possibly the world’s best education system, that of Finland, requires? And when you’ve done that pondering then we can talk about budgets
