There are currently about 2,400 students participating. The program costs the state about $27 million a year from the general fund.
Folks, that’s $11,250 per student, per year; while the legislature funds the public school system at the rate of about $3000 per student…with another $5000 from local and federal sources, to make a total of $8000.
How is that more efficient? How is it even constitutional?
