Using the state's education site, I compiled a table on annual cost per student and SAT scores for Framingham and three surrounding towns.
The 2011 Cost per Student is a link to the state education web site number.
Note total scores in the 2013 SATs versus the total cost per student in 2011 (the most recent state data).
Lexington tax payers pay $16,358 per student or 3.7% more than Framingham's $15,769, but Lexington gets a total SAT score of 1903 or 19.8% better than Framingham's 1588. That is a significantly better SAT score and makes the average Lexington student eligible for almost any college, but I guess the average Framingham students can still go to Framingham State University.
To me this constitutes unequivocal evidence that Framingham teachers are not very good at their jobs for what we pay them. I sincerely doubt that there is much difference in DNA between Lexington students and Framingham students.
Imagine if you invested 3.7% more to get a return on investment of 19.8%. Who would want to go to Framingham schools.
