Overall, it can be clearly seen that the largest proportion of spending was on teachers’ salaries, while the insurance costs accounted for the least percentage of all share in these aforementioned years. (these refers to the years written above. no need to write aforementioned.) Good job!

In 1981, teachers’ salaries had a accounted 40 percent of all the spending, which (which refers to spending and not teacher’s salaries. Please connect it with the noun it modifies. In 1981, teachers’ salaries, which accounted for 40 percent of the total expenses, was 20 folds greater than ……..) was 20 fold greater than the expense of insurance.

In these three years, spending on other workers’ wages, resources such as books and furniture and equipment experienced minor fluctuations.
