I went to a public school that gave us off every time it snowed, an inch & and a 2 hour delay if it was below 32! THATS why I can't spell read or write, along with "check spelling" @ the bottom of this page.
One might note that there is no direct correlation between dollars spent per student and the success of the schooling .Additionally the amount spent for administrative "services" in most school systems is laughable .Administrators simply build kingdoms which have little to do with education.
When you look at the quality of education received before the 70's and compare it today the decrease in quality is appalling.

Then there is the matter of what makes a good school, something on which most never agree:
Lack of poor kids?
Word of mouth? Probably a good one.
Try this: find a high school that gets well above-average scores but is in an area where below-average scores are expected, where a large number of kids go to a university afterward even though only a small number is expected. Park yourself in that attendance area and put your kids in its feeder schools and high school.
What is the percentage of minority students in each of the best rated schools and the worst rated schools? That, in addition to the expenditures per student, could affect the results. Some cultures do not value education to the same degree as others.
