Georgia’s total K-12 funding in Fiscal Year 2013 was $10,370 per pupil, according to the latest Public Education Finances report from the U.S. Census Bureau released this month. Spending per pupil, excluding capital expenditures, was $9,099. These amounts ranked 38th and 37th highest nationally. (See Table 11 on page 11.)

As a percentage of personal income, Georgia’s funding ranked 14th and its expenditures ranked 12th. (See Table 12 on page 12.) Analyzing revenues and expenditures as a percentage of personal income can account for differences in cost of living between states.
