Q: What roles do the federal, state and local governments play in PreK-12 public schools? Why might a state want to limit federal government power over a school?
A: Funding for K?12 schools According to a 2005 report from the OECD, the United States is tied for first place with Switzerland when it comes to annual spending per student on its public schools, [ with each of those two countries spending more than $11,000.[79] However, the United States is ranked 37th in the world in education spending as a percentage of gross domestic product. All but seven of
the leading countries are in the third world; ranked high because of a low GDP.[80] U.S. public schools lag behind the schools of other developed countries in the areas of reading, math, and science.[81] According to a 2007 article in The Washington Post, the Washington D.C. public school district spends $12,979 per student per year. This is the third highest level of funding per student out of the 100 biggest school districts in the U.S. According to the article, however, these schools are ranked last in the amount of funding spent on teachers and instruction, and first on the amount spent on administration. The school district has produced outcomes that are lower than the national average. In reading and math, the district's students score the lowest among 11 major school districts ? even when poor children are compared with other poor children. 33% of poor fourth graders in the U.S. lack basic skills in math, but in Washington D.C., it's 62%.[82] ]

User: What roles do the federal, state and local governments play in PreK-12 public schools?





Weegy: Federal, state, and local governments fund K–12 public education in the United States. Under the Constitution, the state is responsible for public education. [ Annual funding levels vary dramatically across the country, with an average range from $4,000 to $10,000 for students without disabilities and $10,000 to $20,000 for students with disabilities. The federal government contributes about 10% of the total budget for both groups, primarily in the form of categorical grants to state education agencies. Local taxes generate the bulk of school funding (40%–50%). The heavy reliance on local property taxes causes significant funding differences within and across states. Some states have attempted to address the inequity by developing formulas that help equalize disparities and increase funding to disadvantaged areas. ]
