Spending Vs. Outcomes By School

Edunomics Lab developed interactive data displays to explore resource equity, how dollars are  allocated to schools, and which schools are most able to leverage their money to maximize student outcomes. Users can explore and filter by specific districts, school characteristics and student demographics.

Edunomics Lab is building NERD$: National Education Resource Database on Schools to capture states’ per-student spending by school as required under ESSA. NERD$ compiles year-over-year data into a publicly accessible, permanent location and makes it usable for research, policy, and practice.

To share your state’s data file for inclusion in the database, please email Doug Hummel-Price: nerds@georgetown.edu.
