An Education Week Research Center analysis of federal data shows spending levels per student in most U.S. school districts for fiscal year 2013. The school finance analysis comes from Education Week‘s Quality Counts 2016, which provides details on how states allocate funding to public schools and grades them, taking into account overall spending and the equity with which that funding is distributed among districts.
This map, using Research Center data, was produced by NPR for a series on public school spending across the states.
