Compare Rock Island-Milan with Davenport Schools
In 2012 the Davenport schools spent $11,193 per pupil. In 2012 the Rock Island-Milan school district spent $12,153 per pupil. A difference of $960 per pupil! Obviously all those added layers of bureaucracy in Rock Island County schools add to the cost as do all those other frills that do nothing to prepare our children for a productive career. Rock Island County schools do not need revenue from yet another tax increase. They need to spend the more than ample revenue they are now receiving more wisely. Vote NO April 7.
