Wednesday, July 17, 2013 - 11:00 AM

The Daily News took a close look at how much the city spends on students in each New York City school district and compared it to the four-year high school graduation rates.

In the Sunday paper, reporters Ben Chapman and Corinne Lestch found that "bigger bucks haven’t always produced higher graduation rates."

Student spending in the city jumped from roughly $11,000 in 2001-02 to about $19,000 in 2010-11, the most recent year data were available.
