Revising State Education Finance Systems: Simulating Policy Alternatives.
Callahan, John J.; Goettel, Robert J.
This paper examines several major State finance revisions and the procedures used to analyze their impact on school district per pupil expenditures, State aid, and local tax rates in New York, Massachusetts, and California. Policy alternatives include utilization of measures of educational need, municipal overburden factors in the general formula, and regional and full State financing schemes. Attention is given to the problems of data availability and the analysis of options. (Author)
