Priced Out of Public Schools

Public schools are designed to provide every student with an equal opportunity to achieve the American dream. In reality, that ideal is removed from the lives of millions of K-12 schoolchildren. Geographic school district boundaries and the rental housing market limit options for students with the highest needs while benefiting more affluent families in far too many communities across the country.


This package contains Kentucky public school data for 2012-2017 from the Kentucky School Report Card website. Data from the 2017-2018 school year are from the Open House page on the Kentucky Department of Education website.
