New York City school spending has gone insane

New York City is spending billions more on public schools despite enrollment declines, a staggering $39,304 per student in 2025, new Citizens Budget Commission report says The book points out.

Enrollment in Department of Education schools fell by about a tenth from fiscal year 2020 to fiscal year 2023, when DOE costs per student exceeded $37,000, but As a result, there was a slight increase in 2014.

Importantly, class size mandates inspired by the American Federation of Teachers are increasing spending more than ever, forcing the school to hire 17,000 more teachers at an annual cost of $1.9 billion. I’m saying that. The real impact will be fewer seats left, even though most of the city’s lower-performing schools already meet the law’s standards. Better school.

We remember the old TV seller Crazy Eddie. The price was “outrageous.” fraudulent.

At least Eddie promised. low Price: Under Albany’s whip, DOE spending is sky-high. expensivethe quality will decrease.

And the City Council wants to increase spending on education. On top of that What’s included in the final budget negotiated with the Adams administration has already increased city spending to $2.1 billion to make up for the cutoff of $2.4 billion in federal coronavirus aid.

In other words, the pandemic is long over, but apparently pandemic spending must continue.

Meanwhile, DOE test scores remain mediocre at best. There are no voices clamoring to spend more money, and there’s no real pretense that it will improve the outcome of the system.

It is the height of insanity that taxpayers pay billions of dollars more each year in return for the same academic mediocrity.
