The reports, attached below, show that the total spent on primary and secondary public school in New Hampshire was $2.78 billion.  About 54% of the funding comes from local property tax, Another 33% comes from the state - the adequacy grant.  That is down from over 50% in 2000/01.  About 6.7%, or $185 million was federal money, including ARRA.  It was $137 million, or 5.6% in 2007.  About $61 million from NCLB (not shown on the report but on the FN for HB 1517)

There are two additional reports from the New Hampshire Policy center attached below that are very useful in analyzing what is really happening in adequacy funding.
