Noncapital Education Expenditures, Rank (1=Lowest Expenditures Among the States), Arizona State and Local Governments

Visualization Notes:

In fiscal year (FY) 2011, Arizona ranked near the bottom of the states on each of the four measures of funding for elementary and secondary education, lower than in the early 1990s when the state ranked below average. Funding for higher education in Arizona does not rank as low as K-12 education, but was below the median state on all four measures in FY 2011, including seventh lowest per full-time-equivalent student. Large increases in university tuition have kept the state’s spending from deteriorating more than it has.
