In 2003, there were approximately 2M public school students in Ontario. By 2010, it was down to 1.9M. (http://www.hwdsb.on.ca/secondaryarc/files/2011/01/Item5-MinistryofEducation_Enrolment-Trends-2002-2014.pdf). However, in this same time period, provincial education spending jumped from $14.8B to $21.4B. Per student spending increased by 6.2%.

Hmmm....

2 Million students and $14.8 billion spent is $7,400 per student. 1.9 million students and $21.4 billion spent is $11,263 per student. My downtown elitist pinko math says that's actually a per student spending increase of 52%.

But hey, if it feels to you like it really is 6.2% after all, then there is a job opportunity waiting for you in Doug Ford's Ministry of Finance.
