Outsource the students?

I quote New York Times (an article by By WINNIE HU),

"School Districts With Officials but No Schools? New Jersey Has Them ".

If the party involved in the above were to be a private individual, or an organization we would called it just 'scam'. It's a joke we can do without.

This shows only part of the problem with school districts. For the enormous amount of property taxes collected, the results are appalling. We spend way too much on the schools and the returns are below average.

Do we know how much India, China, and Russia spend to educate a student?
I believe this is a very relevant question since we want to be globally competitive. It's time we look at the money spent on schools and start asking questions such as, 'should we outsource our students?'
