It's no doubt that New York has some of the highest education standards for our students, but that also comes with a price.New York has 3 different regions in the top 10 per-student spending in the United States.

According to the Buffalo News:

Per-student spending in the Buffalo Public Schools is among the highest in the country, with new data released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau showing that the city ranks fifth out of the country’s 217 school districts with more than 30,000 students.


Two of New York’s other large urban districts – Rochester and New York City – surpassed Buffalo in the Top 5 for spending, helping make the state’s per-student costs the highest in the country.
