Mapping English-language Learners

The EPE Research Center provides detailed information about an increasingly important and growing student population of English-language learners.

School Finance

Every year Education Week’s Quality Counts report engages in an in-depth investigation of school finance, grading states on their spending patterns and the degree to which education dollars are equitably distributed across public school systems. The EPE Research Center is making its detailed local data on school finances available, including: total revenue and expenditure levels, per pupil spending, revenue sources, spending patterns, and adjustments for regional cost differences.

You need to know…

  • What share of district revenues come from state, local, and federal sources?
  • Which districts spend the most on public schooling and how many dollars go to each student?
  • How much do school systems spend on instruction, transportation, and other expenses?
