Funding Education: Problems, Patterns, Solutions.
This analysis provides an overview of the educational finance problem, particularly as it relates to property tax burdens and equality of education. It also describes some systems of State funding and outlines and evaluates possible solutions to the finance problem. Some of these solutions include (1) increased Federal aid, (2) a local nonproperty tax, (3) regionalization, (4) modification of New Jersey's foundation program, (5) the proposal of the advisory commission on intergovernmental relations, and (6) total State funding. Numerous illustrative charts and tables are provided. Appendixes provide charts that show (1) local tax rates as a function of various funding programs, (2) State costs as a function of various funding programs, and (3) local tax rates as a function of multiple funding options.
