@ 4, 12, and 15:

Two things, we've been INCREASING per pupil spending for the past few decades and secondly there isn't anything to show for it:

I mean, fuck... can we actually bring some other options onto the table for once since more spending doesn't seem to be doing shit?

I voted yes because the main study used by 1240's opponents appears to be bullshit:

Yeah, I know. That source supports charters. But I'd say if just half the criticisms brought up in that PDF are true, then 1240's opponents need to expand their data set beyond just a static measurement of charter school's in 16 states that were just getting off the ground and look at a bigger sampling size over the course of a few years.
