American inner city high schools fail despite lavish spending.

Sharing is Caring!

The situation at Ballou High School in DC is emblematic of the dire state of inner-city public education in America. Despite exorbitant spending, including a $124 million building and an annual cost of $25,412 per pupil, the school fails to provide students with essential skills, with only 3% proficient in math and 5% in reading. Shockingly, the graduation rate remains high at 70%, highlighting the systemic issues plaguing the education system. Similar challenges are observed in Baltimore, where black students face significant academic hurdles, further exacerbating inequalities. It’s imperative to confront these realities, no matter how uncomfortable, to enact meaningful change and ensure that every student receives a quality education. Continuing to pour money into failing systems without addressing underlying issues is a disservice to our children and our future.
