Notes:
Illinois contributed only 28% of the cost of educating the state's school children in 2007, down from 33 % in 2004. Illinois is in 49th place among the states in the portion of school revenues that come from the state. Property tax payers are paying a larger share of the cost for schools. As affluent school systems succeed with referendum requests, the disparities in spending among school districts have widened.
