Fewer kids, far more spending.

Dan Berrett of the Pocono Record in Pennsylvania did a nice job of laying out why spending in the school districts he covers increased 45 percent in a five-year period in which enrollment declined 5 percent. It took lots of reporting and data analysis and no small amount of time, but in my eyes it was well worth the effort. Not to mention replicable, for journalists anywhere.
