Lower Merion School District Spends; Places 8th falling 7th
Looking away, Lower Merion may not be the vaunted education engine many seem to think justify spending more than almost any of the other 503 school districts and, like so much else in Lower Merion, expenditures have not resulted in the promised performance. Generally, it is thought that parental engagement in a child's education and quality of teachers are the two most important factors in education performance. Construction does not even seem to get to the radar screen.
Lower Merion School District does not publish other performance standards such as Advanced Placement statististics, college acceptance statistices or similar data that I am aware of. If that data is published, please let me know.
