Analyzing What is Being Spent in Addressing Barriers to Learning and Teaching

facet of mapping and analyzing resources is estimating dollars spent.
The specific question with respect to addressing barriers to learning and teaching and re-engaging
disconnected students is:What percentage of a school and district budget (including what the community
links to a school and district) goes to these matters?
