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.

SPENDING data for each school was collected from the National Education Resource Database on Schools (NERD$) and is shown on the horizontal axis per student. Note at what value the axis starts (this is often>zero).

There are many ways to measure the success of a school. These displays show OUTCOMES as the percentage of students who were proficient on the state test. The proficiency is averaged across English language arts and mathematics in tested grades. Student outcomes on state tests are one measure that is available by law.
