DescriptionIn this article, TURNKEY calculated the true costs of classroom instruction and other school functions to better examine the cost of education and rank their relative influence on total costs. The analysis revealed some factors affect total costs heavily such as total class size, classroom teacher’s salaries, and total school enrollment. Benchmarks are offered to help fund allocations and ensure the education provided is “worth it.”
