State Per Pupil Spending

The Great Recession forced the General Assembly to make tough budgetary decisions in order to pass a balanced budget. One area in particular that has been impacted is funding for K-12 education. Roughly 95% of Virginia schools have had their funding decreased… but not Fairfax County!

My fellow Northern Virginian legislators and I have increased funding for education in Fairfax County. Over the past five years, we have delivered $618/student/yr. more to our Fairfax County Public Schools! We worked tirelessly to have the tax dollars generated in Fairfax County kept here for our schools despite numerous attempts to divert the funds to other parts of the state.  I thought you may be interested in seeing the data yourself:
