Where's the money part deux

A just-released NEA teacher survey performed in June 2002 of 1,000 teachers nationwide claims that:

One out of six elementary and secondary school teachers who use textbooks in their classes say they do not have enough books for every child in their class, and nearly one in three teachers report they do not have enough textbooks so that all students can take a textbook home.

I'll say it again. The average class yields around $200,000 a year in per-pupil income. Yet, there is no money for books. What are they spending the money on?
