Barr, Richard H.
Compiled from annual reports submitted by the states, data on the total current expenditures (including expenditures as defined by P.L. 81-874 and P.L. 89-10) for elementary and secondary public education in the United States for 1972-73 is reported. Average daily attendance (ADA) declined from 42.5 million to 42.2 million, or about .7 percent. Total current expenditures amounted to $46.2 billion, averaging $1,096 per pupil in ADA. Federal sources accounted for $4.0 billion, or 8.8 percent of the total expenditures. State per-pupil expenditure ranged from $595 (lowest) to $1,689 (highest). Comparing percentage-by-expenditure category with 1964-65 data, the emphasis changes with less spent on instruction and related pupil services, while more is spent now on administration and fixed charges. Tables present complete expenditure and revenue data for all states and aggregate data for the United States. (Author/DW)
