MYTH: Colorado ranks 49th in funding K-12 education

FACT: Comparing real dollars spent, Colorado ranks 26th at about $10,000 per student. If you count spending as a % of income—meaning more money should be spent simply because residents earn more money—Colorado ranks 43rd. (National Education Association, 2013)
