Infantile Argument About the Merits of Ohio vs Louisiana

Having fun over on fanblogs arguing with a real dedicated Louisiana fan — Latest BCS Rankings. Amazing how much data the census department provides — the school spending data is amazing — look at the spread across the country in figure 4 — an over 2x difference between the big spending states (NY) and the bottom (UT). Now some of this is just cost of living probably but a dramatic difference nevertheless.

And to the point — Ohio outspends Louisiana per student by a wide margin.
