Kansas Leads Nation–in Federal Education Dollars

More and more, states are depending on the federal government for their education money, as federal funding went up 60 percent between 1999 and 2005. Blame (or credit) No Child Left Behind, says the Tax Foundation’s report “K-12 Spending More Reliant on Federal Government Since No Child Left Behind Act.”

In Kansas, the percentage of school revenue coming from federal sources went from 6.26 percent to 10.16 percent. Per-pupil funding went from $ 452 to $ 968, an increase of 88.02 percent–highest in the nation. Second-place Nebraska was far behind, at 68.44 percent.
