Very well written blog post and incredibly interesting topic! My infographic for midterm 1 has gotten me thinking about something relevant to this post: is money enough to make up for educational gaps? In the case of France, it’s not. I’m curious to see how the changes in how Eastern Washington schools are funding impacts the quality of education. It’s tough because on the one hand, you don’t want to deny schools the funds they clearly need; but on the other, by providing extra funds, lawmakers may think this is the solution to all the state’s problems and may back away from making any other reforms.
