The last column in the above chart shows the changes in per-pupil allocation from the state of Texas for each district listed. Why did these changes happen? More specifically, why did the average DFW district listed come out with $32 less per student in state funding that the rest of Texas during these years? Why did Dallas ISD, with such high levels of poverty, come out with $334 less in funding per student?
Here is a 2013 document that should answer this question: http://www.tea.texas.gov/WorkArea/DownloadAsset.aspx?id=2147511834
It not simple. I am working to understand it due to these unusual changes in funding that happened in the DFW area.
