Pupil-Need Oriented State School Finance System: The Hope of Large City Schools.
In the wake of "municipal overburden" characterizing today's cities faced with an increased demand for public services and a diminishing tax base, most urban areas in the United States have had to explore new sources of additional funds ranging from federal revenue sharing to the use of public lotteries. This paper focuses on the financing of urban education using Chicago in the state of Illinois as an illustrative example. By presenting a detailed comparison of Chicago vis-a-vis the metropolitan area with respect to fiscal capacity and educational need, the author argues for financing urban schools on the basis of educational need and analyzes the implications of some recent plans to finance local school districts in Illinois. This report should be of considerable use to educational planners interested in public finance. (Author)
