Breaking Down Per-Pupil Spending in Utah
By Dan Bammes
Salt Lake City, UT – Education is the Number Two issue in the top ten list of voter priorities identified by a poll done for the Utah Foundation. Foundation President Steve Kroes says Utah spends less per pupil than any other state, but proportionately more of that money goes to classroom instruction and less to administration than the national average or in five peer states with similar demographics.
The Utah Priorities Project Report on education is available at the Utah Foundation website.
