Per-Pupil Spending for the 25 Largest School Districts

We often see state and national per-pupil spending figures reported in the news, but the statistic seldom appears for local school districts. Fortunately the U.S. Census Bureau compiles these numbers, and many more, for each of our more than 13,000 school districts.

These are for 2017, and I have listed the districts in order of school enrollment:

New York City -$25,199
Los Angeles - $13,549
Chicago - $13,488
Miami-Dade County - $9,240
Clark County (NV) - $8,973
Broward County (FL) - $9,055
Houston - $9,716
Hillsborough County (FL) - $8,934
Orange County (FL) - $9,272
Palm Beach County (FL) - $9,782
Fairfax County (VA) - $14,498
Hawaii (statewide district) - $14,322
Gwinnett County (GA) - $9,598
Wake County (NC) - $8,597
Montgomery County (MD) - $16,109
Dallas - $10,086
Charlotte-Mecklenburg (NC) - $8,998
Philadelphia - $11,741
Prince Georges County (MD) - $15,560
