Adjusted for inflation


To the Editor:

In your editorial on March 4, you note that per pupil spending has increased 22.91 percent since 1994.

Why does it cost so much more to teach kids today vs. just a decade ago? you ask.

What about inflation?

I checked the U.S. Labor Department inflation calculator. Since 1994, the Consumer Price Index has gone up by 24.97 percent.

So in dollar-adjusted terms, the Grosse Pointe school district is spending slightly less per pupil than it did in 1994.
