educational spending in Greater Clark County
A little bit of arithmetic...
There are about 11,000 public school students in the GCC district. (Another website said there were 10,000, but we'll go with the larger number.)
According to an article in the C-J this morning, the GCC public school budget is nearly $75 million.
At present, we're spending about $6,800 per public school student-- $170,000 for a classroom of 25 students.
GCC's ISTEP results are below-average for Indiana-- in reading and math, in every grade level.
