2013 – Charter Schools; Impact on Traditional Public Schools
|Map – Charter School Potential Impact on Mississippi Public School Funding|
This map shows the amount of underfunding for the Mississippi Adequate Education Program for each public school district for fiscal year 2012. In addition, this map shows the potential impact on each district if 111 students were to leave a district for a charter school. According to the data, for each student who leaves a traditional public school to attend a charter school, there will be a diversion of approximately $9,000 from the traditional public school district to the charter school.
