The National Center for Education Statistics just released The Condition of Education 2018, and I plan to post a bunch of stuff from the report.
The first is state revenues for K-12 education as a percentage of total public school revenues. Please note that the data are from 2015.
Well, lookie here! The North Carolina General Assembly supplies a higher percentage of funding than any other state in the Southeast. And only a handful of states have a higher percentage of state funds than North Carolina.
