Fiscal Effects of Public School Finance Plans.
Keepes, Bruce D.
Two major issues in public school finance are fund raising and fund distributing. In this paper, four school support plans are analyzed for their effects on the distribution of funds among local districts, on the distribution of the tax burden among local, State, and national bases, and on the provisions for districts to raise or lower taxes. Plans one and two both equalize the educational services of all districts in a State at some level. Under plan one the State provides all funds for educational services. Under plan two the State adds to funds raised locally up to the point of equalization. Plan three calls for States to provide matching grants to locally raised revenue. Under plan four local districts set the level of educational service, and States subsidize some portion of the total expenditure. (RA)
