Issues in School Finance.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Select Committee on Equal Educational Opportunity.
This document compiles several studies on educational finance, including "Federal Aid to Education: Who Benefits?""The Financial Aspects of Equality of Educational Opportunity," and "Legislator's Guide for School Finance." Also included are two briefs filed in the San Antonio vs Rodriguez case and a listing of current school finance litigation. The first study examines the effect of Federal dollars in five industrial States to (1) determine who was benefiting from the expenditures, (2) study the decisionmaking process affecting the allocation of funds, and (3) recommend changes in aid formulas and administration. The second study summarizes present inequities in school finance, reviews the causes of these inequities, examines recent court decisions, and concludes with a series of recommendations. The Legislator's Guide contains a brief analysis of four "real life" alternatives to school funding by State systems and a concise conceptual framework for approaching the study of school finance reform.
