PA Association of School Personnel Administrators


 How much does Pennsylvania spend on K-12 public education compared to other states?  In 2012, PA spent $26.5 billion on K-12 education. Only five other states - California, New York, Texas, Illinois, and New Jersey spent more.  In Education Week's 2012-13 Quality Counts report, Pennsylvania ranked towards the bottom on every measure of funding equity.

A 2014 Associated Press analysis of Pennsylvania districts found that districts in the top fifth for wealth, based on average resident income, are spending $4,000 more per student this year than those in the bottom fifth. These poor ratings for equity could stem from several factors. Check out the full article and podcast from Newsworks.
