A Linear Programming Model to Optimize Various Objective Functions of a Foundation Type State Support Program.
Matzke, Orville R.
The purpose of this study was to formulate a linear programming model to simulate a foundation type support program and to apply this model to a state support program for the public elementary and secondary school districts in the State of Iowa. The model was successful in producing optimal solutions to five objective functions proposed for testing it, and thus it is concluded that the use of a linear programming model to simulate a foundation type state program is indeed feasible. Tables present the study data, and an appendix provides the algebraic matrix used for the solution to each of the five problems. (Author/DB)
