Most K-12 spending goes to salaries and benefits
from Education Week
Recently released federal data confirm what many people already know: The salaries and benefits of teachers, administrators and support staff consume the vast majority of spending in education. Salaries and benefits make up a combined 80 percent of school spending, according to the Condition of Education 2017 report, published by the National Center for Education Statistics. Eleven percent goes to purchased services, such as professional development and food, and 8 percent toward supplies, from textbooks to heating oil.
