Equity and Adequacy in Education Finance: Issues and Perspectives - new book

ISBN: 9780309065634

Spending on K-12 education across the United States and across local school districts has long been characterized by great disparities-disparities that reflect differences in property wealth and tax rates. For the past quarter-century, reformers have attempted to reduce these differences through court challenges and legislative action. As part of a broad study of education finance, the committee commissioned eight papers examining the history and consequences of school finance reform undertaken in the name of equity and adequacy. This thought-provoking, timely collection of papers explores such topics as: -- What do the terms "equity" and "adequacy" in school finance really mean? -- How do school districts use money from finance reform? -- What are the politics of school finance reform? -- How is school finance reform being pursued through litigation? -- What is the impact of court-ordered school finance reform on spending disparities? -- What policy options are available to states facing new challenges from court decisions mandating adequacy in school finance? -- When measuring adequacy, how do you consider differences in student needs and regional costs?
