How Has State K-12 Funding Fared in Your State?

This interactive map shows the change — in both dollars and percent — in state general K-12 funding per student since 2008. As our recent report explains, funding is below pre-recession levels in at least 30 states, after adjusting for inflation; in 14 states, the decline exceeds 10 percent. While most states are providing more funding per student this school year than they did a year ago, funding generally hasn’t risen enough to fully offset earlier cuts.
