If some school systems are able to divide their costs between what happens within school walls and what happens on the outside, while don't all the districts do this? Is it more difficult for smaller districts to divide their funds? I'm just curious about the differences.
I currently work in a very large, wealthy school district. After growing up in a small/poor district and student teaching in an even smaller/poorer one I am constantly aware of the vast differences between large and small districts and the resources/funding/opportunities available in larger districts.
