But the Friedman Foundation is willing to say anything...

We include this link to a Friedman Foundation study to show that there are no limits to what the school choice advocates are willing to call a study so that bill sponsors can refer to it in support of legislation.  It says that 64% of the costs of educating a child in a given year are variable costs, so the schools actually save money when the child leaves!  

The advocates and sponsors rely on assumption that legislators are unlikely to actually read the study or assess it.
