That figure is off by a factor 6-10 too. In October 2008 the number of people enrolled in anything from kindergarten to college was ~76 million. ~48 million in elementary and high school. Source.

$18.7 billion / 76 million students = $246/student
$18.7 billion / 48 million students = $390/student

Doubt that would fix much, even if every single dollar trickled all the way down.
