ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the statement of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) regarding the flawed data used by California Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO) in its report. According to the AAP, the LAO estimates for the instructional materials spending of the state was too high. The AAP calculation on instructional materials spent per student was $55.63 in 2004 as compared to LAO's $237 per-pupil calculation from National Center for Education Statistics.
