Per pupil cost of NCLB underfunding

Chris Correa, using the National Priorities Project chart and census data, estimates the per pupil cost of NCLB underfunding.

Anyway you look at it, it looks pricey. No wonder the schools are cutting arts and other programming to pay for NCLB>

The results are interesting. Top ten states are:

Alaska $770.56
DC $664.27
North Dakota $529.06
Wyoming $488.00
South Dakota $483.64
Montana $467.27
New Mexico $430.18
Hawaii $358.68
Vermont $348.08
W. Virginia $322.01


California (19th) $245.85
