Tracking the Education Dollar

Texas Public schools spent a total of $54.4 billion in 2008–09 to educate 4.6 million students. Of this total, $8.7 billion was spent on capital outlay, $4.9 billion was related to debt service, and $39.6 billion was spent on “basic educational costs.”  The remaining expenditures represent payments to shared service arrangements, payments into Tax Increment Financing (TIF) arrangements, and the operating costs associated with building school facilities.
