Issues in School Finance/A Texas Primer.
Hooker, Richard L.
This booklet attempts to provide the layman with information on the need to equalize educational opportunities and taxpayer burdens in a high quality State system of public schools for Texas. The publication attempts to stimulate discussion and provide a foundation, in the briefest form, for the consideration of Texas school finance issues. Essentially, the booklet is a review of the Rodriguez vs San Antonio Independent School District court case, which hit on the constitutionality of the Texas school finance system; the Minimum Foundation Program (MFP) established in Texas in 1949 to guarantee a minimum level of support for the operation of local public schools; previous Texas school finance study recommendations; and the National Educational Finance Project. Two appendixes consider Texas school finance studies in progress and school finance policy questions. (Author/DN)
