(UNDATED) - A recently released study of education funding ranks Indiana 32nd in the nation in terms of money going directly to students.

The study by federal funds information for states says only 60 cents of every state dollar that goes to schools is actually allocated towards classroom teaching, with the rest used for administrative expenses.

New York, Maine and Minnesota were the top-ranking schools, with at least 65% of
spending going to classrooms.
