(WFSB) – A Litchfield County school district is the most equitable school district in the state, while a Fairfield County district is the least.
The personal finance site WalletHub.com on Tuesday released its list of Connecticut’s most and least fair school districts.
The public school districts of Litchfield, Eastford and Somers topped the list as the most equitable.
Litchfield’s âpublic elementary school expenses per studentâ was $ 24,446 while its âincome per school districtâ was $ 84,694.
The districts of Westport, Weston and Darien were at the bottom of the list as the least fair.
Darien’s expenses were $ 23,673 while his income was $ 232,523.
WalletHub said more than half of teachers reported significant learning loss during the pandemic and poorer districts were disproportionately affected.
To find out where school funding was distributed most evenly, WalletHub assessed the equity of each school district in Connecticut based on two measures: average household income and public elementary and secondary school spending per student.
Compared to other states, Connecticut was the 18th least fair, according to WalletHub.
