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 Texas. To find out where school funding is distributed most fairly, WalletHub scored the equitability of each school district in Texas 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. Texas ranked as the 24th least equitable overall.
Below, you can see additional report highlights, along with a WalletHub Q&A.
