North Carolina Ranked As Having The 2nd Most Equitable School Districts in America

444

While the US is among the most educated countries in the world, it doesn’t always provide the same quality of schooling to all students. Often more affluent school districts receive a significantly greater amount of funding per student than poorer districts.

These discrepancies have been significantly exacerbated over the past year due to Covid. Low-income students have suffered the greatest “learning loss” due to partial or total remote learning, given they are less likely to have the technological resources they need.

Today the financial website WalletHub released a report ranking the States with the Most & Least Equitable School Districts. To rank each state, they scored the equitability of each school district in each state based on two metrics: average household income and expenditures for public elementary and secondary schools per pupil.

North Carolina was found to be the 2nd most equitable state in America.

The site also ranked each school district in our state as follows:
