Upstate NY Public School Spending

I've lived my entire life in the great state of New York.  And let me tell you, people here just love to worry about the state's finances.  Even when we're doing well, we complain about how we're not doing better.  Its kind of a local passtime. 

If you want some good fodder for the game, you need to look to the Office of the Comptroller - the big beancounter for the entire state.  They're like the bookkeepers for all our public institutions: every town, county, city, library, fire district - and school.

Much of the data they keep is freely available online.  I was browsing through some of it the other day and found something I thought I'd point out to you...


How much did your school spend on you - 
and how much did it spend on itself?

All of us went to school, but few of us ever ran one.  Because of this, most of us have a bit of a bias when it comes to our idea of what operating a school is all about.

There's more to school districts' spending than textbooks, desks, field trips and the teacher's salaries.  Quite a bit more, apparently.

There's a huge building to maintain, all kinds of insurances, pensions for retired teachers, transportation, student programs, health initiatives, debts that may need to be paid off, etc.  And don't forget, managing all these spending items and program requires a gaggle of administrators and assistants.  These expenses add up.

How significant are these other expenses?  I've put together a quick "school spending" data set for your perusal, so you can see for yourself.

Are you a NYS native?  Look up your alma mater, or some local districts, and see how they fare.  Hail from elsewhere?  You might still find this snapshot of US public school finance interesting just from an academic standpoint.  They are surprisingly complex organizations!


Notes about the data

Ok, so this is a list contains all 692 public school districts in Upstate NY and Long Island.  It references their spending in school year 2010 - 2011.

I've broken the spending of each school into 4 categories: "Education," "Administration and Operations," "Employee Benefits" and "All Other."  (*Note that your sports teams are actually being counted as an Education cost here - "physical education," "leadership," "team building" and all that jive.)

Now, the OSC records teachers' salaries - but not the cost of their benefits/pensions - as part of the cost of educating students.  So "Education" includes teacher pay, but not the cost of their benefits.  All school employees' benefits are captured in the "Employee Benefits" bucket.

Turns out most public schools in NY devote only about half of their spending to educating pupils.

Here's my question: Does that seem like a lot to you?  I'm honestly not sure if I expected it to be more or less...what do you think?

Browse the list, chew it over, and - as always - please please please post your thoughts/opinions in the comments!  I'd love to hear what other people think!


And without further ado...THE DATA!!

To get a definition of a particular spending category, hover your cursor over the its title in the table's header.  Go here for more detailed explanations of spending categories.

I've sorted all districts from smallest share going to education to largest.  Happy browsing!

  1. Is it possible there's a relationship between amount spent on students and the standard of living/household income for that district? Just flipping through this offhand and the more upper-scale Buffalo suburbs seems to spend a lot more percentage of funds on students, while Buffalo itself is pretty low (49%).

    But I only know Erie County, so that doesn't give me much of a sample size to say that with any confidence. Such a correlation may also represent a different relationship (if such exists), such as urban vs non-urban districts.

  2. Huh...that's a good observation. I don't really know off hand, I feel like you might be able to make a PhD project out of that kind of analysis. But what would be the thinking, that a school with more students, more programs, maybe more aid, would need more paper pushers? Cuz I could see that.

    On the other hand, the really rural schools seem to have pretty high admin/operations costs also. Its probably quite a juggling act to run a school that might span multiple counties or towns!
