When it comes to school funding, it's never never 'enough' for Democrats

Pennsylvania spends nearly $16,000 a year to education public school students, but Democrats say that's not enough. Despite declining enrollment and a death spiral for test scores, the only course for Democrats is to throw more money at the state's failing school systems.

From an editorial in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Based on state Education Department figures, school spending set a new
record in 2014-15 at $27.4 billion, amounting to $15,854 per pupil.
That's 10th in the nation, according to the U.S. Department of
Education. In 2014 the National Education Association ranked
Pennsylvania sixth nationwide in per pupil revenue, according to the
Commonwealth Foundation.
