Determining Where to Put Your Instructional Dollars.
Garner, William L.
This report suggests that state boards of education are best able to make budgetary cuts after consulting professional staff, identifying basic educational objectives and goals, and determining which programs contribute most to the largest number of students. A board's decisions are facilitated by such legislation as Utah's Special Purpose Optional Programs (such as career education and extended year), which allow local boards of education to move funds where they wish or to eliminate programs.
