   “With research showing that low-income students will fall behind their wealthy peers if schools operate remotely due to COVID-19, and a renewed focus on racial equality, WalletHub released its report on the most and least equitable school districts in Colorado. To find out where school funding is distributed most fairly, WalletHub scored the equitability of each school district in Colorado based on two metrics: average household income and expenditures for public elementary and secondary schools per pupil.
   Alongside this report, WalletHub also released rankings for the States with the Most and Least Equitable School Districts, along with accompanying videos and audio files. Colorado ranked as the 9th least equitable overall.”
