The Mobilization of Federal Aid by Local Schools: A Political and Economic Analysis. Working Draft.
Porter, David O.; And Others
This paper focuses on the processes used by school districts to mobilize Federal aid, and outlines a framework for discovering and analyzing factors that influence districts' mobilization patterns. A major study finding is that factors other than Federal regulations and formulas have a great impact on patterns of resource allocation used by recipient districts. These factors include (1) ambiguity of Federal goals, (2) unsophisticated technologies, (3) strategies such as multipocket budgeting or marginal mobilizing, and (4) professionalism and vested interests of school staffs.
