Decisions made by federal and state courts during 1983 concerning school finance are reported in this chapter. Among the decisions discussed are United States Supreme Court findings in cases involving tuition tax credits, reimbursement of misapplied Title I funds by states, and tuition requirements for nonresident students. Cases concerning the constitutionality of state school support programs were litigated in Maryland and Arkansas with opposite results. The legality of fees assessed students was questioned in cases heard in California and New York and other cases touching on similar topics are discussed. Discussed also are: decisions affecting the provision of public funds for services, textbooks, instructional materials, and transportation provided by or for private schools; the provision of funds for special education; the power of school districts to levy taxes; the financial relationship of school districts to other governmental bodies; and the proper allocation of school funds.
