With society’s heightened focus on racial equality and research indicating that low-income students will fall behind if classes are held remotely, WalletHub has released the Most and Least Equitable School Districts in Pennsylvania, a report that shows Chester County is home to three of the 10 least equitable school districts in the state.
To determine which school districts distribute their funding most fairly, WalletHub used two metrics: average household income and expenditures for public elementary and secondary schools per pupil.
Tredyffrin-Easttown School District ranked lowest in Chester County at No. 497, making it the third-least equitable school district in Pennsylvania. It has a $133,983 median household income and spends $17,510 per pupil on public elementary and secondary schools.
Unionville-Chadds Ford School District is the sixth-least equitable at No. 494 with $126,349 in income and $17,663 spent per pupil.
Meanwhile, Great Valley School District is the ninth-least equitable with $19,338 spent per student on $113,895 median income.
WalletHub also published States with the Most and Least Equitable School Districts. Pennsylvania landed in the middle of the pack at No. 26.
