K-12 Expenditures

About this Indicator

This indicator shows the average state K-12 expenditures per child enrolled. Nationally, total expenditures per student increased over the past few decades, which was partly due to increased spending on school debt interest (149 percent increase), capital outlays (117 percent increase), and employee benefits (75 percent increase).
