For more information on this ranking and the issue of educational productivity, read this week’s newsletter, “The most and least productive school districts in NC.”
Note: The lower the ROI score, the higher the productivity. For example, districts that scored a “1” had the highest achievement and lowest spending. Districts that earned a “6” had the lowest achievement and highest spending.
