Carson explains how he would fund public schools


Ben Carson denied Tuesday that he supports the redistribution of public funds to fund public education, despite comments in a 2014 interview that indicated otherwise.

“If you happen to be in an affluent community, there’s a lot more money for the schools, better facilities, everything. All that does is perpetuate the situation,” he said in an interview with Politico published in April 2014. “Wouldn’t it make more sense to put the money in a pot and redistribute it throughout the country so that public schools are equal, whether you’re in a poor area or a wealthy area?”
