ALBANY, N.Y.—New York's school districts have faced major declines in their federal and state aid over the last decade according to State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.
Dinapoli also stated that revenue growth was nearly flat the last three years, averaging only 1.3 percent.
DiNapoli says too many high-need school districts are left behind because of these tax revenues and there needs to be a broader discussion about the challenges these districts face.
From 2007-2013 the total school district revenues grew by 2.4 percent annually.
