Municipal Overburden. State-of-the-Knowledge Series, No. 13.
Peterson, LeRoy J.
The discrepancy between a city's financial obligations and its fiscal capacity to meet those obligations with reasonable effort is referred to in this paper as "municipal overburden." The literature concerning the causes and the impact of municipal overburden on school support for essential school services is analyzed. Attempted corrective measures identified include adjustment of State educational support formulas, and action through local, State, and Federal levels of government. (Author/MLF)
