K-12 Education Costs more than reported

CATO: Spending On Public Education 44% Higher Than Reported.

Video and written report shows that actual per pupil spending in many school districts is much higher than reported. For Houston:

the average real per-pupil spending figure of over $12,200 is 49 percent higher than the $8,200 the districts claim to spend. Real public school spending is 30 percent higher than the estimated median private school spending average of $9,400 (Figure 6)
