Thanks to RightAngleBlog, I came across this website which gives all kinds of great information on our school funding.
Interestingly, when you compare per pupil operating revenue among the various Lucas County school districts, you'll see that most schools between 1990 and 2005 got between $1,000 and $3,000 per pupil in state funding and that their local funds far exceeded the state amount.
EXCEPT Toledo Public Schools...
TPS has gotten operating revenue between $3,000 and $5,000 per pupil from the state (higher than the other districts) and our local funds have been between $2,000 and $3,000 (but not reaching $3,000) per pupil.
Lots of interesting conclusions can be drawn from these charts...have fun!
