The Oklahoman's Michael McNutt and Julie Bisbee reported yesterday that in his trip to Oklahoma this week, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush "said he was skeptical of State Question 744, a measure on the Nov. 2 ballot that, if approved, would require Oklahoma to increase per-pupil spending to that of surrounding states." They quote Gov. Bush as saying:
"The question ought to be, is more money spent per student in an unreformed system going to yield rising student achievement? There's absolutely no evidence that more money per student yields higher student achievement."
Where in the world did Gov. Bush get a crazy idea like that?
