Do schools have enough? K-12 funding across the country
»50 items «
As school districts across the nation scurry to find funds for the coming year, state lawmakers are trying to balance budgets and meet K-12 education needs. The national average class size is about 21 students, and the nation spends more than $800 billion on education yearly; that's about $7,700 per student. The U.S. spends more on education than other major nations including Canada, France, Japan and the U.K. Despite the high spending, American children rank lower than these other nations when it comes to test scores and retention rates. With more anticipated federal budget cuts, most states are sacrificing higher education and other budget areas in order to focus more funds on K-12 education. We've analyzed data from all 50 states and compiled a list of state class sizes, annual spending and K-12 education budget information.
