Ever wonder how fairly school funding is distributed throughout a school district?

Wallet Hub recently released a report report for the Most and Least Equitable School Districts in Colorado. Loveland's Thompson School District ranked as one of the Centennial State's most equitable school districts.

The study looked at "average household income and expenditures for public elementary and secondary schools per pupil."

The rankings put Colorado as the ninth least equitable U.S. State.

Here's a look at the specific districts rank on both ends of the spectrum:
