Spending Per Pupil Increased for Sixth Consecutive Year

Washington, DC...The amount spent per pupil for public elementary and secondary education (pre-K through 12th grade) for all 50 states and the District of Columbia increased by 3.4% to $12,612 per pupil during the 2018 fiscal year, compared to $12,201 per pupil in 2017, according to new tables released today by the U.S. Census Bureau.  The increase in spending was due in part to an overall increase in revenue. In 2018, public elementary and secondary schools received $720.9 billion from all revenue sources, up 3.8% from $694.3 billion in 2017.



Other highlights include:


  • State governments contributed the greatest share – 46.7% or $337.0 billion – of public school system funding.
  • New York ($24,040), the District of Columbia ($22,759), Connecticut ($20,635), New Jersey ($20,021) and Vermont ($19,340) spent the most per pupil in FY 2018.
  • Of the 100 largest (based on enrollment) U.S. public school systems, the five that spent the most per pupil in FY 2018 were New York City School District in New York ($26,588); Boston City Schools in Massachusetts ($24,177); Atlanta Public School District in Georgia ($16,402); Montgomery County School District in Maryland ($16,005); and Baltimore City Schools in Maryland ($15,793).
  • Public school systems in Alaska (15.8%), Mississippi (13.8%), South Dakota (13.6%), New Mexico (13.4%) and Arizona (13.2%) received the highest percentage of their revenue from the federal government while public school systems in Massachusetts (3.9%), New Jersey (4.0%), Connecticut (4.2%), New York (4.3%) and Minnesota (5.1%) received the lowest.
  • Interest income revenue for public school systems increased by 75.4% between 2017 and 2018, from $1.9 billion to $3.2 billion.

These statistics come from the 2018 Annual Survey of School System Finances. Education finance data include revenues, expenditures, debt and assets (cash and security holdings) of elementary to secondary (pre-K through 12th grade) public school systems. Statistics cover school systems in all states and the District of Columbia. They are not adjusted for cost of living differences between geographic areas.

    Au contraire, then why are the educated young not having children? They are not having children because they know how expensive it is to raise and educate a child, and don't expect everyone else to pay for them. When they do have children they go to private schools, but are still taxed to pay for the public school idiots.

    But you on the other hand, will just keep inbreeding autistic and disabled children because your genes are inbred. You and your family are just too uneducated and lacking in brain cells to understand you should not be breeding because you are inferior.

      If someone wants to put their children in private school and pay taxes for public school, I have no problem with that. I have no children but I pay taxes for the schools, no use in having a hissy fit over it, and it doesn't help anyhow.
      Not sure why you seem to be so easily upset to resort for name calling. Are you always so easily unnerved by others?

        The need for private schools in Calaveras isn't great because our public schools are some of the best.
        Religious reasons and home schooling are still there that want something different for their kids.
        Unfortunately, when looking at spending per pupil, the reality is that most students don't directly feel the impact of extra spending.
        The extra spending goes to expenditures that don't reach most regular ed classrooms.

          Consider that the tuition for a good private school in San Francisco (definitely not a religious school) is around $35,000 per year. Tuition at Yale University is $54,000 and Yale Law School is now $59,000. The starting salary for Yale Law School graduates in private practice is $180,000 and the average total annual income for a partner at the law firm my son works at in NY is $4 million. I would say that is a pretty good return on my investment.

      Hi John Hamilton! 👋
      Nice try attempting to get people to argue to increase your site page hits.
      It’s still not going to get your ad revenues to increase. 😛
