Here are a few stats worth mentioning:
New York spends the most amount of money per pupil per year with funding at $19,552. That means that to teach a class of 25 kids to read and write for the year it costs $488,800. Yet only 31 percent of New York’s public school students were proficient at reading and math in the 2012-2013 school year.
Those are gruesome statistics. Especially when a technology of study exists that helps millions of people around the world and, at a fraction of that cost, could be easily implemented.
