New York Is Top State in Dollars Per Student - New York Times

New York Is Top State in Dollars Per Student - New York Times

Vermont's spending per student is # 3 in the U.S. and as % of personal income is # 2.

"When states were ranked by school spending as a percentage of personal income, Arkansas’ proportion was the highest, followed by Vermont, West Virginia, New Jersey and New York."

Meanwhile, Vermont students score in the middle on tests under the No Child Left Behind Act. Yet, the Legislature chooses to do next to nothing to control costs. We are on the road to spending on education far beyond our ability to afford.
