  • Per Pupil Expenditures (2007-08) – National Center for Education Statistics Pupil to Teacher ratio (2007-08) – National Education Association Technology – Education Week
  • It is important to note that if the State covered these costs (as some states do), it would free up local districts to assess where they needed funds the most. Also, this is also a low number because we all know that some kids are not identified for Categorical Programs. [This is the total dollar number that school districts are spending.]
