Arizona Education Funding
April 21, 2009
How much does Arizona spend on public education? It depends on how you do the math. Comparisons of how much States spend, per-pupil, on K-12 education often list Arizona at, or near, the bottom. Typically, Arizona is shown to spend around $6,000 per student compared to a national average of more than $9,000, but the Goldwater Institute is reporting that Arizona spends more than $9,500 per student. We’ll take a look at what may account for the differences.
