In Search of Equality: School Finance Revisited. A Report.
Bendixsen, Marian F.
In this report, the author describes and examines some of the policy alternatives available for the implementation of an equitable system of school finance. The author provides statistics that trace the historical disparities in interdistrict school expenditures, describes recent court challenges to school finance systems, and discusses both full State funding and equalized percentage matching alternatives. In discussing these alternatives, the author describes the effects of varying the measures of need and ability, and points out the implications of these alternatives for revenue raising in general and for property taxes in particular.
