-- how about this question about education -- spending on education actually lead to more successful stirred so we have for you some numbers on that the most recent from the LA don't nine school year.
Take a look at Washington DC spent the most of the country on education just over 161000 dollars a student.
High school graduation rate 62% or thereabouts meanwhile Wisconsin -- graduation rate in the country spent 5000 dollars less per student give or take.
That if you look at you talk spent the least in the country just over 6000 dollars -- student but their graduation rates almost 80%.
Nevada spending a little bit more.
And about 8400 per student yet they have the lowest graduate -- graduation rate in the country in Nevada right around 56% so with more on all this.
We bring in Joseph Klein is a former chancellor of schools here in New York City and sacrifice vice president of the educational division at this -- which is our parent company that this could have been -- -- a pet project jolt of something you looked at over the years that.
More money doesn't equal better results all the time but what's the key to that.
It -- it's how you spend your money gets -- and any organization and right now and education for the last forty years as a country.
We've more than doubled two and a half times as much money.
And our high school achievement rates or flat so -- -- do we know it's money that is not going to be the solution to this problem won't buy a senator problem tell me then how you either.
Wanted to order actually did change the allocation of funds -- New York City -- asset because sometimes when you wanna -- something you can't get because of what the unions -- Fighting you -- whatever the case may be but what's -- place that you wanted to take money that was being spent and spend it somewhere -- about the results be better for example I think right now -- First thing you do is give the money to the kids not to schools -- -- -- political decisions get made so let's just say cost 121000 dollars a -- a -- in Wisconsin.
Let the kid have the money and choose among the schools and the system don't just flow of money straight to fiscal second of all if you want to know how to spend your money wisely.
Take -- -- bureaucracy.
Spend it on better technologies and better technological solutions that will empower.
Our children and reward excellence right now would wanted to biggest things wanted to do O'Connell was to make sure with the great teachers -- paid more.
We've tracked him to New York wanted to things we do do -- increase in number high quality teachers coming.
But in order to keep them here and make sure they stay -- do the work.
You gotta pay them more so those are the areas we want to make -- investment could do so then the -- that the next question becomes are we on the right track with any or all of this I saw recently.
That piece you've written a few weeks back you were saying -- -- this big political changes we're not gonna see the changes we need to see an education have we turned some sort of a quarter are you feeling confident about it or it's just.
The tremendous amount of work I always feel confident but I don't want to kid anybody we have a lot a lot of work ahead of us.
Forces that defend the status quo are very powerful in this game -- and so for example.
The union wants to have more teachers because that's good for the union share and grow the teaching force.
But in most industries which you really want to do is empower you work force.
And make sure that the things that the computer can do better -- the things of software can do better on dot.
So -- -- any BB changes we are seen.
Some changes it in the states Clinton.
And that bring that to question about teaching specifically -- -- -- -- question in my mind about spending that we were just talking about and that.
Would it be -- does the research that you look at tell you that it would make more sense to spend more money on fewer teachers in other words increase class sizes.
With good teachers in front of those classes bigger classes.
That have more teachers teaching a smaller class are no question about -- -- -- if you as the finest I don't question let's ask them this question -- would you rather have your kid in the class of 28.
With a spectacular teacher class of twenty with a mediocre team there you go -- teacher retirement and the research -- set up -- -- -- the research backed that up and also we do this intelligently.
We can actually attract the kind of work force we need and empower.
The workforce so that the teacher doesn't have to do everything teachers shouldn't have to plan a single lesson planning to write once.
Each day there are ways to do that now.
Teaching and education is gonna come to 21 century.
Was still using -- nineteenth century model will have back ought to talk about how -- -- to do that would News Corp.
here reference -- hopefully connect look forward to thank you -- always good to see him Joseph Klein.
-- News Corp.
but also the a former chancellor of schools here in -- --
