HOW DOES CALIFORNIA COMPARE?

California educates about an eighth of America’s students, so does it make the grade when compared to the rest of the nation?

  • 51st nationally in student-to-teacher ratio

  • 51st nationally in student-to-counselor ratio

  • 51st nationally in student-to-librarian ratio

  • 41st in the nation in per-pupil spending when adjusted for cost of living

Since 1970, California has increased spending on prisons and incarceration about three times as much as it has increased spending on education.
