How Does Pennsylvania Stack up in School Revenue?
The National Center for Education Statistics recently released 2013-14 figures on revenues and expenditures for U.S. public schools. How does Pennsylvania stack up when it comes to funding?
On a per-pupil basis, Pennsylvania exceeds the national average in revenue from local, state, and federal sources. Overall, public schools in the commonwealth are funded 9th highest in the country and $3,500 more than the national average.
Note that these figures are for the 2013-14 school year and thus pre-date Tom Wolf's tenure as governor.
