RALEIGH, NC (March 10, 2023)- The Public School Forum of North Carolina’s 2023 Local School Finance Study is now available. Through the Local School Finance Study The Forum has highlighted variations and trends in local spending for public education across our state’s 100 counties for over 30 years.
The purpose of this annual study is to isolate local spending from state and federal spending to examine the capacity and actual effort of counties to support public schools. The Local School Finance Study focuses not only on the amount that counties spend on schools, but also on each county’s investment in relation to their taxable resources. The data presented in the most recent study are from the 2020-21 school year.

About The Public School Forum of North Carolina
Since our founding in 1985 as a nonpartisan “think and do tank,” the Public School Forum of North Carolina has been a champion of better schools and one of the most trusted sources in the state for research and analysis on vital education issues. In order to provide meaningful action on our state’s most important public education issues, we bring together leaders from business, education and government to study education issues, develop ideas, and ultimately inform and shape education policy. We do this through research, policy work, innovative programs, advocacy, and continuing education for educators and policymakers.
