How has education funding changed over time? (Urban Institute)

Aug 9, 2017

This feature article from the Urban Institute allows users to explore how local, state, and federal education funding have changed over the past two decades. The tool looks at the "level of school district funding over time and at the changes in funding progressivity, or how much more is spent on educating low-income students relative to nonpoor students." In its analysis, the Urban Institute found that "[t]hough education funding has generally increased since the 1990s, overall progressivity has largely been flat, and states vary widely in how much money they spend on education and how they distribute that money."
