How is high school funded?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (14710points) 1 month ago

How is it mostly free? Can we continue with the same funding formula for university?

They do in some places, for the first two years of college (junior college) are free or almost free.

Community college is free here if it’s your first degree, funded by the lottery.

Subject to stringent roles, though. Like a 3.0 grade point average.

High Schools are funded by the county or municipal (city) government, and gets aid from the State and Federal government.

College would cost more but maybe not insurmountable.

Community college used to be free; when I took Calculus at the local JC it cost $1 per semester for the health center.

California is working towards free community college.

High School is funded just as elementary school, through local property taxes and state and federal funding.

Actually, High School usually isn’t funded. But what I said is the official way its supposed to be funded..
