Idaho schools get more than 63 cents of every education dollar from the state Legislature, one of the highest percentages in the nation, Idaho Education News reports. A new federal study, based on 2011-12 numbers, shows that only three states rely more heavily on state funds for their schools: Hawaii, Vermont and New Mexico. Meanwhile, the 23 cents per dollar that schools get locally was one of the lowest percentages in the nation, with just Hawaii, Vermont, New Mexico and Alaska lower. The study also noted that Idaho’s per-pupil funding ranks near-last, exceeding only Utah’s. EdNews reporter Kevin Richert has a full report here.
