B.-GRAND TOTAL OF EXPENDITURES.
[See Table 2, page 7.) The total amount expended for educational purposes, public and pri. vate, in 1888–89, was $171,739,317, or an average of $2.82 per capita of population.
Of this amount, $135,737,600, or $2.23 per capita, were expended upon elementary schools ; $19,258,491, or 32 cents per capita, upon sec. ondary schools; and $16,7 43226, or 27 cents per capita, upon superior institutions of learning.
The following table gives a detailed classification of the per capita ex. penditure. The expenditure for higher grade institutions includes the amount expended for the preparatory or academic departments. It will be observed that there is a much greater coutrast between the North and South as regards expenditure than there was in the case of pupils, owing to the expenditure per pupil being much less in the South.
