Public Elementary & Secondary Education Expenditures in Nevada.
Ching, C. T. K.; Detering, Stanley G.
The relationship between expenditures for public elementary and secondary education and the factors related to these expenditures in Nevada were investigated in this study. The major components of the public education problem were listed as follows: the high proportion of tax revenue spent on education, the inadequacy of present methods of financing education, the quality of educational inputs, and the presumed disparity in quality of education between urban and rural areas. Two separate analyses of data were performed. A time series-cross sectional model was estimated using data for the 1968 through period for the 17 county school districts and a cross sectional model was estimated for fiscal year 1970. Major conclusions were that there have been pronounced changes in real per student expenditures since fiscal 1968, that school district expenditures per student decreases as district size increases, that a negative relationship holds between expenditures and rural-urban status, that per student expenditures are positively related to input quality, and that educational expenditures and community wealth are positively related.
