Where School Dollars Go to Waste - Atlantic Mobile
On theAtlantic.com website, Terrance F. Ross writes about the money spent on education and some comparative results as reported by "WalletHub":
"Now, the online financial resource WalletHub has crunched the numbers on school spending at 90 of the most-populated cities across the country, revealing which ones are getting the most—and least—bang for their buck. To arrive at the findings, WalletHub divided each city’s aggregate test scores in fourth- and eighth-grade reading and math by its total per-capita education spending. The researchers then adjusted those figures for various socioeconomic factors, such as the poverty rate and percentage of households that don't speak English as their first language."
