Details

The Zuni data come from a law case "The Zuni Public School District No. 89, Gallup-McKinley County Public School District No. 1, Petitioners v. United States Department of Education" concerning whether the revenue per pupil data satisfied a standard for "equal" expenditures per-pupil in a state. This classification determines whether most of the federal money given to the state under the law goes to the state or to the local school districts.
