The Public School Forum of North Carolina has a new study out on what it considers to be large gaps in funding among ?rich? and ?poor? school districts in the state. Here is a link to a Winston-Salem Journal article describing the findings of the study.

Now, here?s the contest: see how many errors of statistical measurement and interpretation you can find, either in the study itself or the coverage of it. I accept your gratitude in advance for picking a case with so many errors to choose from.
