Finances of Large-City School Systems. A Comparative Analysis.
Fox, Lynn H.; Hurd, Gordon E.
This study examines the financial status of 87 large city school systems to discover if (1) each system receives funds from the State in proportion to its number of pupils in average daily attendance, and (2) each system receives funds from the State in accordance with its relative need and ability to support schools. Data compiled from 1967-68 local school system surveys provide a means of comparison between each city school system and the average for all school systems in the State where each is located. The data and the analytical tabulations used for these comparisons are shown in accompanying tables. (Tables on pages 42-49 may reproduce poorly.) (Author)
