Disparities in school spending have been a point of contention in the American public education system for decades. Because public schools typically receive the bulk of their funding from local sources such as property taxes, wealthy districts are often better funded than poorer ones.

While studies have shown that higher per pupil spending can improve student outcomes, there are countless other factors – both inside the classroom and outside of it – that can impact a student’s likelihood of success. One of them is financial security at home.

For students from low-income families, setbacks can be more difficult to recover from due to limited supporting resources. A recent report published by the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce found that children from low-income households who receive high scores on standardized aptitude tests in kindergarten have only a 3 in 10 chance of graduating from college and landing a good entry-level job as a young adult. Meanwhile, children from well-off families who score poorly on the same tests have a 7 in 10 chance.

This study suggests that even if per-pupil spending were equal across the thousands of school districts in the United States, students in high-income areas would still have a considerable advantage.

Of active districts in South Carolina with at least 100 students, Lexington School District No. 5 – located in Richland County – ranks as the wealthiest. Households in the district have an average annual income of $96,105, compared to the statewide average of $76,390, according to five-year estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2020 American Community Survey.

Due in part to the strong local tax base, education spending in the district is higher than the state average. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, per pupil spending in the district was $12,977 in the 2018-2019 school year, the most recent year of available data, compared to an average of $10,994 across all schools in South Carolina.

According to Mayor White, who presented Mr. Richard Kessler a key to the city, "Certainly knew if I could just get Richard Kessler to Greenville, something great would happen. And boy did it." Chairman and CEO Richard C. Kessler said, "As soon as I saw the location on the river I knew there was no question, this would be the site of the hotel." According to Kessler, "We couldn't do a typical hotel, it's too precious of a site in this park. We had to do something special, and this is really an opportunity for us to add something beautiful for the community."

Located in the heart of Greenville, the seven-story property features signature Bohemian interiors designed to reflect the natural beauty of the area. The lodge offers 187 luxury suites and guestrooms, breathtaking views and gathering areas, Kessler's signature Poseidon Spa, $2 million worth of curated artwork, including a Grand Bohemian Art Gallery and upscale dining.
