The Blackhole of DCPS

Did you know that the District spends more than double per student than Fairfax County  ($29,000 vs. $13,000), even though:

FCPS Graduation Rate (2011): 91%

DCPS Graduation Rate (2011): 53%

FCPS average M+CR SAT scores (2011): 1104

DCPS average M+CR SAT scores (2011): 819

I knew DC had worse outcomes than Fairfax on average, so I was surprised to find out per student spending is so lopsided in the other direction.
