Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    It will be interesting to compare student achievement scores over the last few years, while the districts were facing a decline in revenues. We always hear how more money needs to be spent on education, but I doubt there is a direct correlation between more money being spent and better achievement scores. It hasn't been the case for the last few decades.

    Illinois consistently devotes approximately 27-28 percent total spending to K-12 education.[62]


    Fiscal Year

    Total Spending[63]

    Education Spending[64]

    Percent Education Spending

    2009 $123.1 billion $35.3 billion 28.6%
    2010 $129.7 billion $35.5 billion 27.3%
    2011 $127.7 billion $35.2 billion 27.5%
    2012 $125.4 billion $35.6 billion 28.3%
    So much for declining state expenditures to schools.
