US-26 States Earn ‘F’ Grade on School Spending in Education Week Anaylsis

At a time when money is front and center as an education issue—fueling a recent wave of teacher strikes and legislative wrangling over resources—Education Week‘s latest school finance analysis illustrates why the nation earns a mediocre mark on school funding and how fairly that money is divvied up within states.

This second installment of Quality Counts 2018, which digs deeper into the C rating the nation received on school finance in January’s top-line report card, reveals much better performance on indicators of funding equity than on measures of overall spending: a B (86.5) for equity, but a D-minus (62.3) for spending.
