Administrative staff (1:1 ratio in DCPS)+
Cost of maintenance, supplies, etc=
big cost of education
a number like, $10,000 per head
$19538 in somewhere like Arlington, VA
this is a suburban district, so maybe in a big city the number goes over the magical $20K?
It sure does: $24,600 for DC.
So where does all this $$$ come from?
Tax revenue, etc.
But hardly anyone pays that much in taxes. Much less the $50,000 to cover your 2 1/2 children.
But most counties aren't actively courting singles or better yet, retirees to boost their coffers.
State spending? Fed Spending? It's confusing to me.
