Where is Yakima on the ‘Most and Least Equitable Schools’ List?
There was a recent study to showed how equitable the school districts were in Washington state. These stats were found by looking at the income by school district as well as money spent per child in public elementary schools. Wanna take a wild guess where Yakima falls on this list of almost 300? Go on! Guess!
Out of 294 school districts, Yakima school district came in 243. Way down the list.
Here's a quick look at other districts in our area.
East Valley - 169
West Valley - 115
Selah - 206
Zillah - 83
Wapato - 227
Toppenish - 244
Sunnyside - 242
Ellensburg - 231

Congrats to Zillah! 83 is a lot better than some others, but it's always all what you make of it.
I'm always interested in stats like this so thought I'd share.
