The national average spending in education in ’06-’07 was $9,666 per student. It was $15,981 in NY. In Marlboro we spend around $21,000 per student in ’08.

The U.S. Census Bureau reported last week New York led the nation in education spending per pupil in the 2006-07 fiscal year, spending $15,981 per student. That was 65 percent above the national average of $9,666 per pupil.
