Financing School Choice. School Finance Series.
Addonizio, Michael F.; And Others
The five papers in this document first apply the criteria of adequacy, equity, efficiency, and liberty to financing school choice programs and then consider programmatic issues related to choice. Following an introduction by Suzanne Langston Juday entitled "Evaluating Education Finance Policy Decisions," section 1 consists of an overview by Patricia F. First on the policy questions surrounding school choice financing. Six choice plans are defined, and issues surrounding each program, such as the costs of transportation involved in magnet schools, are raised. Section 2 provides information about the provision for and funding of choice programs in the seven states of the North Central Region. Finally, three expert commentaries about financing school choice are presented in section 3. The commentaries are: "Fiscal Issues in Educational Choice," by Michael F. Addonizio; "A Commentary on Choice," by C. Philip Kearney; and "Financing School Choice," by Van D. Muller. Three tables and a chart are given. (15 references) (EJS)
