School spending priority report

Some school districts may be misplacing their spending priorities, investing in efforts that do not boost student achievement in math and reading, according to this annual report, which looks at spending in more than 7,000 school districts nationwide. The findings of that first report were worrisome and underscored the fact that the nation suffers from a productivity crisis. The data suggested that low productivity might cost the nation’s school system billions of dollars a year. What’s more, too few states and districts tracked the bang that they received for their education buck.
