MCPS is #8 in Nation - Maryland Public Schools Lead Nation in Admin Costs

The State of Maryland appears to have a spending problem, when it comes to paying public school administrators.
The below list was assembled by Project Baltimore after analyzing a 2017 U.S. Census report on the nation’s 100 largest school systems. The list comprises America’s top 10 for per student spending on administration costs. That is, money that does not go to the classroom. It’s not buying books, computers or science equipment. Rather, it’s going to the administrators. The principals, assistant principals and superintendents who run the schools.
Do you notice anything about this list?
Baltimore City, MD: $1,630
Boston, MA: $1,297
Atlanta, GA: $1,182
Howard County, MD: $1,143
Anchorage, AK: $1,134
Baltimore County, MD: $1,132
Prince William County, VA: $1,155
Montgomery County, MD: $1,099
Anne Arundel County, MD: $1,059
Prince George’s County, MD: $1,049
Six of the top 10 are in Maryland.
