"If the quality of public schools can be measured by the amount of money spent per student, then U.S. students should be performing fabulously. The national average in fiscal year 2009 was $10,499, a 2.3 percent increase over the previous year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, citing data from Public Education: 2009. Some states spent way above the national average, starting with New York, which spent $18,126 per student. ... The states that spent the least amount per student were Utah ($6,356), Idaho, ($7,092), Arizona ($7,813), Oklahoma ($7,885) and Tennessee ($7,897)." [editor's note: Of course the PTB here in my adopted Volunteer State cite this low spending figure (with no income tax as well? tsk,tsk!) as clear evidence of how much we disvalue the chill-drenn! - SAT] (05/26/11)
