1 Current instruction expenditures include expenditures for activities related to the interaction between teachers and students, including salaries and benefits for teachers and teacher aides, textbooks, supplies, and purchased services. These expenditures also include expenditures relating to extracurricular and cocurricular activities.
2 U.S. totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
3 Value affected by redistribution of reported values to correct for missing data items, and/or to distribute state direct support expenditures.
4 Both the District of Columbia and Hawaii have only one school district each; therefore, neither is comparable to other states.
NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
