Financing Public First-Level and Second-Level Education in the U. S. A. Financing Educational Systems: Specific Case Studies-3.
Hirsch, W. Z.
In this study, the author points out the difficulties encountered in a modern democracy by an educational system with highly decentralized sources of finance and analyzes the steps taken to try to remedy these difficulties. The analysis covers mainly the nature of the various resources which the school districts are in a position to mobilize; and the justification for, and the instruments of, the increasing intervention of the States in the financing of first- and second-level schools. Separate chapters discuss local financial support, intergovernmental fiscal relations, State support for schools, and federal support for schools. (Author/DN)
