The nation spends $649 billion on K-12, but does that satisfy school officials?
from Education Week
American taxpayers spent close to $649 billion on its K-12 schools in 2015. That's according to a new survey released by the National Center for Education Statistics. That's up 3 percent from the $628 billion the country spent in fiscal year 2014, according to the Jan. 9 report (that does not include facilities costs). While that may sound like a lot of money, local school district officials frequently complain that it's still not enough to cover the increasing day-to-day expenses of operating schools.
