Here's some much more important education news that you haven't heard much about. Tennessee ranks 46th in education spending. We're behind even Mississippi. The bottom of the rankings:
Utah ($5,765) Idaho ($6,931) Arizona ($7,608) Oklahoma ($7,685) Tennessee ($7,739) Mississippi ($7,901)
That's some great company, isn't it? When businesses are looking for places to locate, do you think they consider these rankings? Of course they do. But none of our political leaders—including the candidates for governor—are talking about this. It's much more fun to pretend our schools are great and state government is bloated and wasteful.
