Texas School Finance and Accountability Experts
A report has been posted on Schoolfundingfairness.org. It ranks the states across a number of metrics related to school finance. A new interactive section allows for data exploration by state. Texas ranked 43rd in spending per student in 2009, received a D for distributional aspects on funding (funding levels were higher in districts with fewer low-income students), and received a C for effort (related to the percentage of state GDP being invested in education).
