New report on California schools

The NY Times reports:
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "Today’s studies show that no amount of money will improve our schools without needed education reform. We need to focus on critical school reform before any discussion about more resources."
California spends more than other states on education, about 60% of tax revenues. But it performs worse on test scores. Spending per student is not so high, because of the huge number of illegal alien kids, but the schools still have plenty of money.

Schwarzenegger is right.
