The new U.S. Census Bureau report for 2009 which contains financial statistics relating to public elementary-secondary education is now available Here. It includes national and state financial aggregates and displays data for each public school system with an enrollment of 10,000 or more.
Summaries as well as state-level detail are presented in Tables 1 through 10. Finance data for individual public school systems with enrollments of 10,000 or more are displayed in Tables 15 through 17. Supplementary data on state-level populations, enrollments, and personal income are shown in Table 18.
Keep in mind, as Chairman of the Sutton Trust, Sir Peter Lampl, said: “The key to improving the attainment of disadvantaged pupils is not necessarily how much money is spent in schools, but how much is spent on what is proven to work in the classroom.”
