A. While it varies across the state by regions, in general New York is simply a more expensive state to live in. The outcome of schools comment is questionable since every state use different measures of assessing student success, even variations in curricula and courses. Point being, it is not an apples to apples comparison. A prime example is that New York is one of the few states that have exit examinations for high school graduations, Regents exams, lending to consistency in quality analysis.
