NEWS: University of Arkansas Analyzes School Funding

The University of Arkansas recently analyzed public school revenue in 14 cities with high concentrations of charter schools for the 2015-2016 school year. The research found that charter schools nationwide receive nearly $6,000 less per student than traditional public schools. Public charter school students in these cities received 27 percent less in revenues than their traditional public school peers.
