Charts: The State Funding Cliff Is Already Happened
A new Census Report shows that local governments paid more than states towards the USA's $593B 2010 funding for education - for the first time in 16 years.
This is mostly because of state funding going down a whopping 6.5 percent, notes a Huffington Post writeup of the report from which I am cribbing.
It's 44 percent to 43 percent now, with federal funding at 12.5. The per pupil average is $10,615.
