Information via Wallet Hub:
With more than half of teachers reporting significant learning loss during the pandemic but poorer districts disproportionately impacted, WalletHub today released its report on the Most and Least Equitable School Districts in Maryland. To find out where school funding is distributed most fairly, WalletHub scored the equitability of each school district in Maryland based on two metrics: average household income and expenditures for public elementary and secondary schools per pupil.
Alongside this report, WalletHub also released rankings for the States with the Most and Least Equitable School Districts, along with accompanying videos and audio files. Maryland ranked as the 19th most equitable overall.
Below, you can see additional report highlights, along with a WalletHub Q&A.

Stupid Methodology. Howard County would have to cut school spending by more than 50% to become the most equitable.
The more I read of that article, the dumber I got.
Only an idiot would believe there is no upper limit on the correlation of education expenses and outcome among students. Research has shown that at a certain point education expidentures per student has diminishing returns.
