ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--How much do Georgia taxpayers spend on public schools? How many people
work at those schools?
The truth may surprise you. Join the Georgia Public Policy Foundation
for a leadership breakfast marking National School Choice Week, at which
Dr. Ben Scafidi, director of the Education Economics Center in the Coles
College of Business at Kennesaw State University, will unveil the
results of his new study titled ‘Balancing the Books in Education’.
The breakfast will be 8 a.m. Thursday, January 26 at Cobb County’s
Georgian Club. About 50 policymakers, policy groups, legislators,
educators, and interested individuals are expected to attend.
This event is planned to coincide with the history-making celebration of
National School Choice Week 2017, which will feature more than 21,000
school choice events across all 50 states.
"Without knowing how much is already spent, too many Georgians believe
the answer to the state's education challenges lies in more funding,"
said Foundation President Kelly McCutchen. "Yet several states are
spending less per-pupil with better results. Dr. Ben Scafidi's
eye-opening study will unveil just how much is being spent -- and where
-- and why wiser spending and competition through choice will improve
