Public Education Finances: 2012 - Public elementary and secondary education revenue declined in FY 2012 for the first time since 1977, when the Census Bureau began collecting education finance data. This report offers figures on revenues, expenditures, debt and assets of school systems, including statistics on spending instruction, transportation, salaries and employee benefits at the national, state and district levels.
