If you are a new school named after Robert Kennedy, the construction price would be about $137,000 per pupil:
Next month’s opening of the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools will be auspicious for a reason other than its both storied and infamous history as the former Ambassador Hotel, where the Democratic presidential contender was assassinated in 1968.
With an eye-popping price tag of $578 million, it will mark the inauguration of the nation’s most expensive public school ever.
That, my readers, is some absolutely prime wastage of education dollars. Don’t be concerned, though, it’s all been approved by the taxpayers, so that makes everything kosher.
