Is $16,000 alloted per student a reasonable budget cost, and how do you back that spending?

Milton Town Meeting appropriated about $800,000 to the Blue Hills Regional Technical School, a school with roughly 50 students. A budget forecast from 2009 had Milton Public Schools average cost at almost $12,000 per student. High School sports and arts programs are already being cut in some areas of Massachusetts, or having to be supplemented by outside sources. Does the average citizen understand public school costs as they rise to some college tuition rates?
