Missouri Ranks 30th In The Nation On Public School Spending Per Pupil

The State of Missouri spends $9,597 per pupil on public schools and is ranked 30th in the nation in terms of spending per pupil, according to data just released by the U.S. Census Bureau.  The median amount spent per pupil across the nation is $10,700 and New York is the state with the highest spending at $19,818 per pupil.  Utah, with spending of just $6,555 per pupil for schools, came in last on the list in terms of spending.

Missouri’s Administrative Costs For Education Much Higher Than Average:

Just a little over nine percent (9.1%) of Missouri’s public school expenditures are for administrative expenses as opposed to instruction or support services, which is 23% higher than the average of 7.38% nation-wide.  While all the states in the nation managed to keep their administrative costs to single digits, the District of Columbia was not and, in fact, at 19.03% was over two and a half times the national average.  Interestingly enough, New York, the state with the highest per pupil spending, had the lowest rate of administrative costs.
