More money and more teachers are nothing more than self-serving strategies to enhance the wealth and power of the education establishment This quote by Walter Williams from his article More Money Better Education is one that I couldnt agree with more Williams article is very persuasive as he uses effective data to prove his point While in his article New Schools Now Jesse Jackson brings up legitimate counter arguments as to why improving our inner city schools is so important but does not come across as very convincing As a recent high school graduate and a current college student my opinion of the American education system is very strong Simply giving more money to schools will not solve the Americas educational tribulations more blame must be put on the students and parents In his article Jessie Jackson tires to persuade the reader into thinking that more money will solve the educational crisis Jackson tires to win over his audience by using a outlandish statistic that shouldnt even apply to the topic Jackson explains Chicago spends an average of 18615 a year on each inmate compared with an average of 6941 on each public school studentJackson 188 How can these two differing numbers even be compared An inmate receives housing food health care and spends the whole year at the jail I believe it is very fair to spend one third of that on a student who does not need 3 meals a day overnight housing and health care It is evident that Mr Jackson has not properly examined the data After reading Walter Williams article I was convinced that Jessie Jacksons beliefs are false When the facts are examined the numbers tell the whole story New Jersey spends 10900 per student this makes them number one in expenditures per student Williams 192 If Jackson were right New Jersey would have the highest accomplished schools in the country But when explored New Jersey is ranked 29th
