MCPS 2nd in Per Pupil Spending in Maryland

Examining more data from the State Dept of Education website and saw some remarkable new information. All data is taken via downloads from www.mdreportcard.org


On the most recent reporting MCPS no longer spends the most per pupil on education. That title is now held by little Worchester County spending $15,498 per pupil. MCPS spends the second most, $800 more then Howard County, and over $3,000 more per pupil than the higher performing Frederick and Carroll County schools.
