Kansas school spending, visualized

kansas-school-spending-example-visualization

Now that Kansas State Department of Education has released spending figures for the 2012-2013 school year, I’ve gathered the data and prepared two interactive visualizations.

One visualization presents total spending, and the other holds per pupil spending. Both hold nominal dollars and inflation-adjusted dollars. Data is from KSDE; visualizations created by myself using Tableau Public.

The visualization for total spending is here. For per pupil spending, the visualization is here.

  1. Great charts that show the fact that government school spending is way over the $4,492/3800 figures the mainstream “moderate” media keep wanting to talk about concerning government school spending.

    This is a great chart for every usd in KS. Congrats for providing this material on your site.
