A 'punishing decade' for K-12 education funding in the states

from Education Week

Despite recent signs of gradually increasing spending on schools, many states today are devoting significantly less money to K-12 education that they were nearly a decade ago. That's the conclusion of a new analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, which finds that in 29 states, total state funding per student on K-12 education — when adjusted for inflation — remains lower than it was during the 2007-08 school year, before the "Great Recession" took hold. The center's report, "A Punishing Decade for School Funding," also found that in 17 states, the percentage drop in total state funding per student was 10 percent or more. more
