Show Me The Money, Roy

According to David Muhlausen, Senior Policy Analyst at the Heritage Foundation, the federal government gave the LAUSD $239 million over a two-year period for tutoring and "school choice" for kids at those schools that failed to meet statutory progress requirements. But, he says, just 218 students used those programs one year, and 315 the next.

Now, according to my limited math skills, that work out to $450,943 per child. (Divide $239 million by 530 students, and you get that figure.)

As Muhlausen puts it, "Either students in Los Angeles are attending tutoring sessions in gold-plated salons and riding to their new schools in limousines, or the money isn’t being spent as intended."

So use that eight-pound human head and show me the money, Roy.

what is the source of this, besides one guy? If true, lets see confirmation. It would be compelling if true, but I doubt it is even close.
