A few months ago, I set out to answer a few questions that should have been simple: how much money do Delaware’s lowest-performing schools get from the state and federal governments, and how do they use their resources to ensure their students’ success? Instead, my attempt to follow the money—$1.4 billion altogether—took me down a path full of misdirection, bureaucratic walls and legalese.
